Just wondering if anyone has had the luck of their child outgrowing some or all of their food allergies and when it happened for them.
My 18-month old son began with milk, egg, soy, peanut, and wheat allergies. By 12 months, wheat was no longer an issue, but all his other antibody levels went UP in a blood draw taken at 13 months. He qualifies for a graded soy challenge, but it's a little taxing for one so young who is teething (no food before or during the 4-hour challenge), so I'm holding off on that for a while.
I'm just hoping that others have had luck because right now, even contact with foods, causes reaction. His entire face swelled up and broke out in hives for 10 hours when he simply grabbed an egg SHELL out of the trash can and rubbed his eye area :o( Tell me I have room to hope please.
