My son was taken to hospital Tuesday via ambulance he had a bad cold to begin with and temp went up to 39.6 and became covered in a rash how ever the doctors believe that it was an allergic reaction on top of his cold that caused this as he has been taken in twice already for this mysterious allergy.we have been informed that will get worse every time and this time they felt the need for him to be placed in resus for5 hours before being moved to the main part of a&e. So I took my son back to the doctors today to see what advice they could give me regarding it and trying to get to the cause of it. All they have done is confirm it's definitely an allergic reaction and carry on giving him the piriton that I was doing even gave it to him before it got to the point of calling an ambulance. I guess my question here is what can I do now I don't want him to go through this again he is only 5 and i just want to help him.

Quite honestly, I would go back and see a different doctor.

I've just had a peanut allergy confirmed through testing but I had a bit of a fight to be taken seriously. The first doctor brushed me off as a neurotic mother but I went back and saw someone else, explained my concerns and that, despite having seen one of her colleagues, it was still playing on my mind. She wrote to paediatrics for advice and, after various tests (and a long wait!) it was confirmed on Friday.

Hope that helps.

Thankyou I will be making an appointment for him again as far as they were concerned there is no way of finding out what has caused it. We have a private hospital near by that If all else fails I will be getting him to see them. X
