That's ridiculous!! Of course he needs to be tested. If in fact he is allergic, there could be long term ramifications such as excema and hayfever. I myself am allergic and one of my sons is 'intolerant'. It is so important to get the correct diagnosis, if in fact he is allergic it will mean a lot of life changes for all of you. My son who does show sensitivity has some fairly rare side affects and if she suspects that your son has an allergy it's important for everyone to be on board and know the risks. On that note, it's also important that you take the results of the test seriously and if in fact he is allergic, that you develop a 'family plan' to deal with it.
My ex still insists my son is 'fine', so we face some pretty harsh side affects because of his refusal to admit there might be long term issues.
