A trip to the Allergist

This afternoon I left work early to get allergy testing. It's interesting stuff, watching things make your arm swell.

The results? I'm highly allergic to dust mites and rabbits. Those made IMPRESSIVE hives. I'm also allergic to cats, trees, grasses and dogs.

So now I have a plan. We need to do some environmental control around the house (bedding covers, lots of dusting and vacuuming plus a dehumidifier and an air purifier) along with drugs. She wanted to keep me on the Nasonex, but it gives me huge headaches. So we're trying Singulair.

Are we going to do allergy shots? Maybe. It's expensive, but if I can't manage with everything else we'll look into it. Now I'm home and looking at at the prices of all the things I need to buy. Oi!
