My mother called me today to give her regular Nicole report.
The day after that big hive attack the night before I left for LA, the little one was fine during the day. However, she got a minor attack that evening... and she didn't drink the offending dairy drink. There must have been something else giving her trouble...
So, since the pediatrician suspected dust and dust mites, my mother dutifully had the rugs and carpets in the rooms Nicole plays and stays in rolled up and put away, just to see what would happen. No hives!!! I guess the pediatrician was right too.
Since Nicole didn't initially suffer any allergies with these rugs and carpets, my guess is that enough dust and dirt has accumulated on them to offend her immune system. So, a regular cleaning will need to be scheduled to keep her play area and sleeping places clean and dust-free.
FOR THOSE IN MANILA: might any of you have information on those Bissell deep cleaning machines, or on a really great rug and carpet cleaning service? Please PM me any information you may have. Thanks!
