My sons doctor referred us to an allergist at his 15 month appointment. We already know that he is allergic to cows milk. After his birthday we introduced cow milk to begin partially weaning him from breastfeeding (because I was going back to college and it seemed best) but it made him sick (and the doctor ran test to confirm it isn't a serious allergy but nonetheless icky). Now he drinks soy and we thought we had solved his problems. However he has this nasty excema looking rash on his face and arms that nothing will help. So, long story short his normal doctor thinks he may have another type of food allergy. Can anyone with food allergy experience or experience with an allergist (what they do, ask, etc) help me out? I am a little frightened to take him to be honest even though the allergist used to be a pediatrician and specializes in children.
