One reliable tesl for cys- iic fibrosis is measurement of ihc slat ocnt.eiii of the sweat, which is greatly elevated in this din ase. It is. of course, pos- sii'.le for a child to have both diseases. Q. My son 9. has had asthmatic bronchitis for four years. .•Vxiut a year ago, the doctor siarted giving him desensitizing .shots. His last tests showed that he is now more ensitive to house dust, wool and feathers l.'!on he was, before he started taHng the shots. Does this mean the shots have failed? Would , : i change of climat ehelp him? A. Desensitizing injections do not help all asthmatics and apparently have not helped your ' son. Since house dust, wool and i feathers are in no way related 10 location, a move would not solve your problem. Emotional factors are often involved in die asthmatic attacks of child- re 1 These should be looked into by a child psychologists. Mean- vhile. there are many remedies your doctor can prescribe to c-.-ntrol the asthmatic attacks. Q. My son, 9, is allergic to bee stings. He was given desensitizing shots for a year but wsien he was stung again he i ad to be admitted to the hospital. Should he continue to take the shots? If so, how often and for how long? A. In the usual course of this a : ty|.'f of immunizing injection, the shots are given once or twice a week and the interval is gradually increased to Once a month or longer. But they are never completely discontinued The most important mea- however, is to avoid flower beds and other haunts favored by bees. When traveling where he might be stung, your son should carry an epinephrine aerosol to inhale if not adult b available to give him an injection of this drug. Ice packs over the sting will slow the absorption of the venom and relieve the pain. Yourself M Va fililT COUNTRY GIRL FOOD MART yjTUvlSMOKED PICNIC LEAN PORK 1712 So.. 12th Ph. 242-2953 OPEN 7 A.M.
