A while back I wrote a post about how maybe my pediatrician was right, maybe my kids simply had allergies. I was wrong. It’s not allergies.
Your kid is sick again, you bring her to the doctor and you get, “well, it’s allergies.” A week later, still sick, you bring her to the doctor again, he shines a light here, takes a temperature there and tells you, “nope, still allergies, but now there’s an ear infection…from the allergies, of course…so here are some antibiotics.”
Then you come down with these “allergies” a few days later. Because, you know, allergies are so contagious. And your husband, too.
And your babysitter had to go to her doctor, and he told her “allergies” until she went back a few days later and demanded a throat swab. Because she had strep throat.
Which isn’t allergies.
