    Has she been tested for a salicylate allergy? The honey now has me thinking! Salicylates are mainly found in fruits, veggies, nuts, honey ( tomatoes are very high) and artificially in toothpastes and shampoos, and this allergy is responsible for loads of problems, sleep, irritability , stomach upsets, etc?

    Oh i never even thought about honey - we dont eat honey (other than honey soy chicken) so it never crossed my mind

    The tomatos though is her fav!!! But where ever the juice from it it touch her she gets a rash - it once dribbled down her chin and down her chest and she had a rash over her face and down the dribble line , however it doesnt seem to affect her insides.

    Plums she gets a rash to
    Sultanas gives her bad green diareah

    Im not sure if she was tested for salicylates. Il have to reaf through her results to see!

    I personally use a fortified, non GM Organic Rice milk as recommended by a dietitian. I don't use soy as a personal preference (and maybe your DD doesn't cope too well with soy either).

    But you could also try oat milk too (I can't use it for DD due to the Gluten).

    I would do, what you can for as long as you can and keep a food / reaction / sleep diary - it may feel like nothing has changed but to write it all down you may realise that the change is huge.

    Just do what you can cope with for now, you also need to replenish your exhausted spirit too... Please take some time for yourself, even if it's a cup of tea. I know how hurt we feel when we cannot solve our little ones health problems... X
    Can i find the rice & oats milk at coles , aldi, woolies? Or go to a special store?

    I would definitely try avoiding tomato, especially if it's giving her a skin rash. She would be having a similar reaction inside.

    I really hope you can get to the bottom of her problems! Poor little girl!
