    Default New food reaction?

    He went to sleep about 15 minutes later, and has been asleep for almost 30 minutes now.

    The rash has faded so I don't think it was that severe?

    I would have some kiddie claratyne in the cupboard in case it happens again. It is quite itchy and sore for kids.

    Has he been sick lately? Two of my kids developed egg allergies as babies but only after they had a cold. A week or so later they were back to normal with no allergies.
    K this is going to sound stupid but how do I give the flour and baking soda seperate? Maybe make the pancakes again after I've tried all the other foods during the week?

    And nope, hasn't been sick.

Wheat restricted diets can be a bit of a challenge.
    I've been so paranoid about allergies and intolerances, I hope he does grow out of it if it is!

    Default New food reaction?

    Just thought I'd update...

    Have been to the specialist for allergy testing and yes, DS is allergic to egg.

    It's only mild though, fingers crossed he grows out of it in a couple of years!

    We go back in 6 months for retesting to see whether the reaction is better, worse, or the same.

    Thanks for your help guys!

    Can I ask what they said about baked egg in cakes etc?
    We have the same issue but the allergist told us to slowly introduce baked egg?

    No the doctor never said anything about egg in baked goods?

    The nurse said the fact that I eat egg and bf might help build a tolerance, but that's all really, otherwise, I was told to avoid it altogether in his food.

    My nephew had an egg allergy - same reaction, rash around the mouth. He needed to avoid it altogether including baked goods. (Orgran's Egg Replacer works really well in all baking.) Since his sister grew out of her gluten allergy, they were always hopeful he'd grow out of it and started trying him every few months after he turned about 2 (I think?). He grew out of it by the time he was 4.

    It's great you've been able to pin it down to a cause. Watch out for baked goods like sausage rolls and even some breads as they are over brushed over with egg.
