I don't remember if I told you guys or not but I had Emma tested for allergies last week b/c of my severe food allergies. Well today I got the results back and they aren't good. She is allergic to milk, egg whites, peanuts and wheat. They say she may even be allergic to dogs but I have not seen any sign of that and she is always around our dog. My allergies are mostly different then hers and easy to deal with. I am allergic to strawberries, cheese and peanuts. I really don't know what to do about her being allergic to egg whites and wheat. Any help would be great. if you know of any good allergy cookbooks for the future or any good websites please let me know. thanks guys.
Oh my goodness! I'm sorry to hear about that. They say that the Cow's milk and wheat allergy are triggered by the proteins in them and eventually, when they grow older, their digestive system will mature and they will be able to digest those foods. I hope thats the case for Emma.
i hope you are right amber. I was told by my friend whose daughter has allergy to milk that they told her to give her a little milk when she was 3 to see if she was still allergic. I go see Emma's pediatrician on the 5th so i will ask him. Do you know if she can have egg substitute?
DS had a milk sensitivity (basically same thing just not as severe as a true allergy) and he was able to grow out of it at about 18 months. Hope emma is able to grow out of some of her allergies as she gets older!
I also have a friend that grew out of her egg allergy at about 21 years old...so it's never too late to grow out of an allergy!
well they gave me two choices either she could have had the skin test where they place different allergies on her skin or blood test. I chose blood test b/c how itchy the other test got on me. She did so great with the blood test too. They had me hold her in like a bear hug so she couldn't move and someone had like a toy in front of her while they poked her. She did NOT cry once. But I did. I would definitely recommend that over the skin testing anyday. good luck. I hope the results come back good for you guys.
