Hello. I had my first ever allergic reaction on Sunday evening. I got hives and my face swelled up. I went to the hospital and the put me on a drip and injected me with all types of things. I have been prescribed prednisone and something else for allergic reactions. I was told to only really start today (Tuesday). The hives have spread and weirdly, my hands and feet are in agony whenever I use them. I am struggling to walk at the moment. I have no more swelling. I am a little worried that I am experiencing these symptom so long after my initial reaction.

My son is 22 months old and he has completely lost appetite. He was breasfed for the first 6 months of hid life and used to eat well. He is now losing wieght and going down on his percentiels. We have checked with doctors and there are NO apparent problems with him. He is growing in height, active and developing normally. Anything to boost his appetite and immune system would really help. He has become an extremely fussy eater and also has frequent viral attackes of cold and cough. Please help a worried and concerned mother.
