Unhappy DS was in the Hospital overnight!

Ephraim spent the night overnight in the hospital.

He had an allergic reaction to either Fish, Peanut, or Tylenol right now they are not sure which since he was exposed to all 3 at the same time.

It's a long story but we had fish for Good Friday dinner and we were he was in the highchair.

We noticed he started to have a high fever and so I gave him some Tylenol. Then he need a bum change right after so I was changing him and he started to not breathe and his eyes were swollen and close and RED RED RED and were watering. Then he started to get a rash all over his body. Mostly on his neck the one side was covered in rash while the other wasn't

Anyway we took him to the ER and he spent the night. It was scary but we are home now with an appointment this week to see an allergist, apparently they don't do the tests in the hospital.

So now it's wondering which of the 3 it was.

We think the fish could have been fried in Peanut oil, or could have been contaminated some how, because the reaction was so severe and so sudden it could also haven been Fish since and allergy to shellfish is known to be severe and sudden also.

I doubt it was the Tylenol because he's had it before.


So anyway we are just taking it easy and I'm basically watching him every moment.

It was crazy!

I think I'm going to dye some PF's to help distract me and calm me.

Re: DS was in the Hospital overnight!

Thanks everyone it was really scary.

More that it was so unexpected and we had no idea what it was because he has been sick for a week now so at first we just thought it was that maybe.

But then it was obvious it wasn't.

Thanks goodness my FIL was here so he just stayed at home with DD who was sleeping of course.

Re: DS was in the Hospital overnight!

So does anyone know how they go about testing for such severe allergies??

I've only ever had the normal environmental allergies testing which is pretty mild reaction wise.

I'm sure it's totally safe just a little freaked out of the thought of it happening again.

I am sorry mama, i hope he feels better soon
i think the testing is done with injections to the person, they will inject a small amount of the possible allergen and see if the skin reacts.

if you don't have benadryl yet, get some and keep it handy, if he gets another reaction give him benadryl immediately, it counterreacts withreactions
