Hi moms,



I am a newbie here and am hoping that will find the answer I am looking for. My son is 2.5 yrs. He has been having eggs and milk since 1 yr old and had no reaction. 3 months ago, he started getting random red patches on his face which lasted about 10-15 mins. We did a blood work and he has a level 2 egg and milk allergy.His ped said to continue giving him because its only level 2. But now when he eats them he gets red patches along with a few hives(not all over his body). I am so confused. Anyone experienced anything similar? What is your kids level? Please help!

My son is also a class 2 to milk, whey, and casein and we were told to avoid them completely. If he is braking out in a rash/hives, you would think the Dr. would say to stop giving him them. Does he go to an allergist? The only food we were informed were Ok to give were the class 0. Even the class 1 we had to rotate. I believe the higher the class the worse the reaction. (( I copied this: Mild reactions to latex involve skin redness, hives, or

itching. More sever reactions may involve respiratory symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, scratchy throat, and asthma ( difficult

breathing, coughing spells, and wheezing ). Rarely, shock may occur: but a life threatening reaction is seldom the first sign of latex allergy. Such

reactions are similar to those seen in some allergic persons after a bee sting. )) He has been tested 3 times, the last test showed a class 5 to peanut in 2008. He was exposed after that date. We just tested him again, and will have results next week.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
