  • SPT welt size?

    Hi there,
    Just a quick question for you all. When you say you childs SPT was for example 22mm, where do you get that measurement from. Sorry if I sound stupid but my sons reactions are measured 10mm x 13mm for example, we go to RPA, is it measured differently at different places.
    We are going back next week for more SPT, I hope he is starting to outgrow some of them.
    Cheers Karen
    My son is 16 months and is allergic to Dairy, Eggs, Nuts & Lupin.

    Hi Karen, we went to an allergist and they used a card sheet that had different size holes punched in it and just moved it up DDs arm until they found a hole that fit the size of her welts.

    They also told us that the size of her peanut welt was "indicative of a significant anaphylactic reaction upon ingestion", but that was all.

    Good luck with the next test. We will have another one done when DD is closer to one.

      My DS welt to peanuts was 22mm. They used a ruler to measure it.
      He is also allergic to dairy, eggs, tuna, dust mites to name a few. His dariy and egg have come down slighty so I am hopibng he will grow out of them.
      Good luck and I hope your DS grows out of his allergies.
