Can you see it? It's more obvious in person than in the photo.
Scott and I decided it is time to get Sam allergy tested. I'll be taking him back to the doctor soon for a follow up to his latest round of antibiotics. (We've been fighting sinus congestion, cough, and ear infections for two months now...and he's still having symptoms.)
Anyway, Sam's always had red-rimmed eyes. Always. We were hoping to see them go away now that I've eliminated nearly all of the dairy in our diet. I'm completely dairy free all the time. Scott and the kids are dairy free at home, but I allow them to order whatever they wish away from home. If the allergic shiners were caused by dairy, I'm confident we would have seen the correlation.
A couple times in the last week or so, I've noticed the redness around his eyes being more pronounced than usual. One of those times, the redness was the most noticeable ever; the day after the entire area was peeling. We haven't been eating out, and I can't pinpoint anything obvious in our diet. It's time to do allergy testing and try to determine the cause. We're hoping that if we can find the cause, we can do something about it, and in doing so, help him with some other areas he struggles with.
