View Full Version : what made him react ?
ok ds is sleeping alot at the moment not sure why but when he does eat we try to give the foods we know he wont react to well, this morning he had vegimite on toast without butter or margarine (nothing unsual) and he had some apple and berry fruit puree afterwards (he picked it lol) anyway, by 9am ds's eyes were all watery and he looked like he had been crying but he hadnt and his nose was runny. and his voice got a bit croaky but the corakyness went away after an hour. but he still has a runny nose, it looks kinda like hayfever if that helps.
he has been eating apple since hestarted solids and never had a problem with it.
i dont know what he could have reacted to :(
Jess.. Have you taken him to the GP to get a referal for an alergy test ? I don't know what age you can get them done but that way you'll know everything he is alergic to. Poor little man. My sister was alergic to alot of foods aswell.
the dr said we should wait till ds's health is not affected by chest infections or bronchitis but he seems to always have one or the other :(
coz the allergist the dr wants to refer ds to will see ds almost straight away i know we have to pay a certain amount though coz its a private one.
Has he had berries before? Strawberry, blueberry etc are quite common allergens. You mentioned it was in his puree this morning. Maybe that is it?
Or he could be allergic to dustmites or another environmental allergen.
Good luck with the allergy testing, it is easier once you know exactly what to avoid. My DS1 had a lot of allergies when he was little. It can be a bit frustrating :banghead:
I would most probably say it would be the berries for sure, they are very common allergens.
Also it may be the bread????
Try buying bakers delight bread, it has none of the additives other breads have.
my ds has reacted to strawberrys it resulted in him being covered in eczema. there was blueberries on the puree are they related fruits?
All berries are related fruits. My DS is allergic to dairy and eggs, but when he was little he had mild reactions to a berry puree I fed him. He became very snotty and started coughing a lot. He was also given a dried strawberry a few months ago and vomitted everywhere. I had forgotten about this until I read your post. So thank you for posting your question, now I can ask his Allergist to test him for berry allergies too.
my ds reacted to bannana when he was about 5 or 6 months it was bannana flavoured custard i think cant really remember and he vomited it back up but hasnt reacted to it since:confused: well not that i cant tell coz of bannanas costing a fair bit lately he ahsnt eaten any for a while lol should i add bannaas to the growing list of what to test for? lol
poor ds he loves his fruits and berries were among a few he liked :(
Have you fed him egg before? Egg is a main ingredient in custard and is also a common allergen. If he is fine on egg normally, then perhaps tell the allergist what reaction happened and they will decide what is best to test for. Some people/kids can be allergic to egg yolk, but not egg white. But I have heard of kids being allergic to bananas as well. If a child has had a serious reaction to a food then they normally push them up the waiting list to be tested. This generally happens for under 2s.
thanks for the info :)
he has had egg (yolk and white) in food but not by itself. like i made some cookies ofr him the other day and the recipe used 1 egg and that made about 10-12 cookies. so i dont think he is allergic to egg but he doesnt really eat very much egg.
he has broke out in eczema again :( dont know what triggered it this time.last time it was strawberries.
so far ds has reacted to (over whole life)
bannana custard or yoghurt at about 5 months but been fine since with fresh bannna.
dairy and soy at 1-lactose intolerance diagnosed
rice that touched salmon-never reacted to rice before
i think thats all of it lol
ds ate a weatbix last night and spent the night filling his nappies with the runs and vomited once. his eyes are starting to look like he has conjunctivitis or the start of it. does this mean i should try him on gluten free stuff? i am going to get him tested for it so i know. i am just wondering if i put him on a gluten free diet would it affect the test?
your poor little man:(
what a nightmare to be allergic/sensetive to so many things.
possibilities: wheat, gluten (different allergens), yeast, preservatives.
has he had the basic scratch allergy tests yet?? if so and he is still reacting but not "allergic", he may have food/chemical sensetivities. where are you? in Vic? try and find an environmental doctor (practicing environmental medicine - includes nutritional, allergies, chemical sensetivities).
they usually have the ability to help people who seem allergic to everything and have all those other immune issues like asthma etc, and "regular" doctors can't really do anything for them except put them on meds to help control.
my dad is a doctor like this so i'm not just talking out of my butt:laughing:
pm if you life and i can give you some more info
couple of website to integrative medicine and environmental medicine that you might want to look through
take care, i hope he feels better. i've read alot of your post about his health and really feel for your both
thanks for the links.yes i am in vic :)
so far the best a regular dr has come up with is to do a trial elimination diet of the suspect foods to see if the reaction keeps occuring or not and then re-intorduce it after a few weeks to see if it happens again.
:thumbsup: thanks i found a dr on the 1st site you linked. have to ring and make a time to take ds to her :)
i have also found a medical centre as well in jan juc which isnt too far away from me :)
