After an incident with peanut butter in March we finally went in to see the Allergy Specialist today. They tested for 20 different things. They dropped them all on her arm then pricked them all. She was such a trooper!!
The test showed that she has an allergy to peanuts. In fact it was twice the size of the other reactions! Its not anaphylactic bad thankfully but its still there! She also showed as having reactions to soybean, milk, egg and dust mites.
The Dr said that I need to cut down a lot of these if not completely out of my diet as I still breastfeed her and if she continued to ingest them via the breastmilk it could make her even more sensitive.
So Im not sure what I need to do. I mean, I had no idea about any of the other ones. It was a shock! He said that they can be also contributing to her dermatitis/eczema. Andupon thinking I think it could also contribute to her constipation problems as well. And could it be the reason she doesnt sleep well?
So the question is. What do I do now? Im totally lost!!
I honestly feel incompetent right now .. more then usual. . .I want to cry!!
