I am at my wits end!  Alyssa is having a reaction to something, and I think it is milk.  She has had a rash for 4 months, and the Dr's say that it is just sensitive skin... and her gas and diarreha are really nothing to be concerned about...just to start eliminating entire food groups until we can figure out what is causing it.  I feel like they are not taking it seriously, and I am frustrated.  AHHHHHHH!  Has any one delt with food allergies?  How did you narrow it down?

Thanks for any help!

i would do just that...eliminate entire food groups and see what happens.  if you eliminate dairy and it clears up...then you know she needs to be tested for that.

We are dealing with allergies right now and it's driving me crazy!  He has serious problems with milk and soy, and projectile vomits them so he's on Nutramigen, which is hypoallergenic.  He's clearly allergic to carrots, oats, barley and likely sweet potatoes, as well as avacados and green beans.  The dr agreed to run allergy tests on him, which we're currently waiting for the results on.
As I had the clue that it'd be a problem b/c of the milk/soy thing I knew to take things very slowly and watch for signs of allergies when introducing new foods, so that made it easier on us.  I gave a single food for at least 3 days before offering something new, to watch for allergies.  His allergies all showed up within a day and a half, or about the 5th feeding, though the carrots were the quickest to show up.  Anyway, it's just a game of trial and error until you can find what's causing it.  You could request an allergy test but, unfortunately, they're not real accurate.  They just kind of offer some direction more than anything.  Good luck!.

i work at a daycare in the infant room as the lead and i suggest to the parents to have their child eat one kind of food for a few days and see if the symptoms go away or if they become stronger. in doing this you can really see what is causing your little ones reactions.

with my son we are worried about how he is going to react to peaches because i have a sevear reaction to them and have to carry an epi-pen.

 

best of luck! :)
