My son's Dr. has diagnosed him (guessed I say) with a chicken allergy. Has anyone ever experienced, or heard of, this? His hands have this breakout that, to me, looks like psoriasis. My son is 8 years old and loves caring for our girls. He likes to hold them, but it's not like he's carrying them around all the time. Caring for our chickens has really sparked a sense of responsibility in him and Dr. has ordered him to not handle the chickens in any way for a week. I bought a pair of gloves for him to use, but we didn't have time to guage whether or not they would help - he saw the Dr. the next day. Dr. prescribed Triamcinolone Acetonide ointment. Thanks, CD.
