The allergist called me with more results from the blood work....I guess they had enough blood to do a few more things than originally thought...

So now I have to remove corn and soy from his diet to see if that helps the eczema/itching/etc. They are both an "undetermined" allergy so really low levels.

Peanuts rose from last time, cashew was high, his cat levels rose to where she said she recommends him not going to even visit people with cats in their homes....EVERYONE IN BOTH OUR FAMILIES HAVE MULTIPLE CATS....

And the kicker is he is sensitive to dogs....it's low but she would not recommend him having one (I am highly allergic also but we were going to eventually get him one anyway)...which breaks my heart because he LOVES dogs. This is new because in earlier tests he didn't show anything to dogs (skin tests).

I almost feel like as he is spending more time around dogs it's making him allergic. The more he's exposed to a food he's becoming allergic.....he is now showing allergies to foods/things he's not showed an allergy to before.

We had that problem. Part of ours was overexposure. When we found out he couldn't tolerate milk we switched to almost everything soy. Then we found out he was allergic to soy, eggs, and so on. Those were the only ones that that happened with but try not to feed him any one thing regularly. The more you rotate meals and foods the less likely of overexposure to one food.

I'm sorry to hear about your results..

I found out a month ago my 16 month old is severely allergic to cats, which was triggering his Asthma.. He rated a 6 on his blood test, which I was told is the highest you can go.. We had a skin test done 7 months ago and he had a small reaction.. Our allergist did tell me to be prepared for him to develop an allergy to dogs and cats.. Never expected to go that fast.. Same with dog A.J had minor reaction at the skin test and at his blood test he rated as moderate.. Now, we had a cat but not a dog.. So I don't know how the heck that happened since he's only been around a dog maybe twice since birth.. But deep inside I know it's all just genetics. My son has food allergies also, but I'm praying really hard he grows out of them since he so young.

Good news those.. They do have hypoallergenic dogs.. I plan on getting one for my son.. I can't imagine not having a dog..


Edit to add:

Here's a list of Hypoallergenic dog breeds
