    Default Allergy? Now what?

    DS is 9 mths old and we are doing BLW so he has been offered whatever we are eating since he was 6 mths. He has recently started consuming more, and for the first time ate a decent amount of scrambled eggs the other day. Afterwards he came out in a rash around his mouth/cheeks. A similar thing happened today. It is fairly mild, but definitely there. He seems fine after eating things such as quiche.

    I have no experience with allergies so I am wondering where I go from here? Do I avoid egg? Do I need to go to the GP to get a referral for further testing? Or do I just keep offering and monitoring it?

    My son's first reaction was to egg. Pavlova in fact. Stop the egg and speak to your doctor or an allergist. They will be able to guide you. Ds was eventually able to consume small amounts of well cooked egg in cakes even though he was definitely positive to both whites and yolk. He has finally grown out of his at 5.
