Do Your Kids Have Allergies

Are your kids allergic to anything? My oldest and youngest are lactose intolerant and my oldest is also gluten free. I am really hoping this baby won't have allergies. I am glad Maddi doesn't have allergies,only occasional seasonal allergies.

Thankfully DD doesn't have any allergies so far.  Hope it stays that way too.

None of my kids have allergies to food but my oldest has seasonal allergies and is allergic to smoke and can't have medicine with sulfa.

My three kids are allergic to amoxicillin. They have no food allergies or intolerance that we've seen.

My son is allergic to penicillin, zithromax, and black fly (gnat) bites.

My daughter isn't allergic to anything that we know of.

Lactose intolerance is not an allergy.

My son is allergic to dairy, dairy bi- products, pumpkin, cats, latex, neoprene, amoxicillin, and sulfa meds. I think that is it.

 My oldest two (son and daughter) are allergic to all tree nuts.

I'm pretty sure my oldest has outgrown his allergy, but he hasn't had an allergy resolution test yet to be sure, so we still report it as an allergy to school, camps, etc. My daughter's allergy, however, is becoming more severe as the years go by.

My youngest (son) has no allergies.

My oldest doesn't have any allergies.  My youngest is allergic to certain perfumes and dyes, we discovered this when he broke out in a head to toe rash at a month old, we had to ditch the Johnson's baby products and Dreft due to him being allergic to something in them.  He's also allergic to dust , cats, and pollen like me.

OP, your children have intolerances which are not allergies.  I'm also lactose intolerant and don't ever list it as an allergy since it is not.

My oldest is allergic to everything... Well no food allergies but animals, outside and penicillin . My youngest no allergies at all. We won't let him have penicillin because I have the allergy also and it's the only one I have so they have decided not to risk it with him

My YDS has a severe nut allergy, such a PIA!!!!!

Fingers crossed my DD won't have any, I am such a foodie, I figure it would be poetic irony if she ends up allergic to a bunch of things!!

On a funny note, if I ever get angry at my DH, I could just get another cat, he looks at a feline, he becomes this swollen, itchy, snotty mess, I tease him all the time!!!
