View Full Version : Egg allergy?
My eldest son has had eczema since he was one and asthma was diagnosed when he turned three a couple of months ago.
He has had a blood test to check if has allergies.
As far as food allergies go I assume he is sensitive to tomato, milk and maybe egg.
My son used to eat egg but hasn't eaten it for a while. Today he had pizza with egg in it and he instantly started to scratch and a rash came up.
It was different to eczema and was under his mouth, on his chin and along his neck. He kept on eating so it wasn't like he couldn't breathe but he was very irritated and was scratching.
He seems fine now but I am interested to know from others what this might be. My question is, is it possible to develop an allergy? Do you think it is an allergy?
Hi I think it could be my DS is allergic to egg wheat sesame seeds tree nuts nuts and contact allergic to citrus. We found out the first time he tried it within 30sec he had this rash appear b4 our eyes. He also has eczema and asthma. The other allergies we found out from a skin prick test. Some kids with an allergy to egg find that they after a few yrs they can eat things with egg in them like cake but not actually eat an egg. Hope i helped a bit
You have helped - thankyou.
Your son sounds similar to mine.
Do you find it hard to deal with day to day?
Yes i do at the start i was very carefull of what he ate and what others gave him now its mainly just the egg very powerfull stuff and it only has to be the smallest amount to start the rash. He is due for another allergy test so hopefully some of the list will dissapear and it will get a little easier. The asthma only started last winter and i am still new to dealing with it and its kinda scary as neither DP or i have ever had it and dont know how it feels.
Ds also has egg allergy, and peanut allergy. I find the egg allergy more difficult than the peanut one at this stage. The allergist said he may grow out of it in a few years though :fingerscrossed: whereas the peanut one may get worse :no:
He can eat things like muffins and cakes that have eggs in the mixture and are baked at a high temp as this changes the properties of the proteins in the egg. However straight eggs or omlettes etc are an absolute no no. He gets the redness around his chin, itching, anxiety etc within a few minutes.
I seem to spend forever at the supermarket reading labels these days to make sure I dont feed him something dangerous (and also to manage my gestational diabetes :( ). The most frustrating thing is when his grandparents feed him dangerous foods because they are 'good Italian meals' and they obviously think I am overreacting. :banghead:
Thankyou for the responses.
I was wondering about eliminating egg from his diet
So he can have food with egg in it at high temp?
i have had an egg allergy since i was a baby also. I know my mum had some problems with what to feed me while i was young but she said the only real reaction i had to it was if it was not cooked properly (in things like cake). i have since grown out of this allergy and i have had more tests done which have showen that i aM only allergic to egg white.
so maybe you should find out what part of the egg DD is allergic too and then i think its just triel and error but deffinitly pay attentioin to how long you ate cooking cakes etc....
