My daughter is allergic to peanuts, milk, and egg white. She could have imitation oreos, but not the real ones. 99 cent store cheese puffs, but no Cheetos. Sometimes the Kraft slice cheese gives her a rash and sometimes she is fine. Very confusing.

My son is on the gluten free dairy free yeast free diet to help manange his behaviours associated with autism and my daughter has anaphalaxis to eggs, peants/treenuts. My husband has anaphalaxis to trreenuts and fish.... needless to say with this many allergies in our house we have become expert readers of the ingredient list....

My baby sister will be 2 in may, and is lactose intolerant. We found this out when she was a couple months old and was constantly throwing up her formula. Her formula was changed and now she is drinking lactose free milk. When she was eating baby food we always had to read labels. My mom will occasionally give her small amounts of chocolate, cheese etc. in hopes that she will eventually outgrow it. We have to get her imitation cheese and when cooking we use her milk so she can eat it. I have a 2 year old and a 4 month old myself that so far (knock on wood) don't have food allergies.

my son is severely allergic to milk, the tiniest touch on anypart of his skin breaks him out if he swallows any he throws it back up and will also break out in his diaper area. He also has a sensitivity to eggs, dr says its not an allergy but if he eats eggs he throws them up after one bite. Finding things for him to eat is hard to say the least, all kid food is made cheesey or creamy even "soy" yogurt has live milk cultures in it(one bite and he broke out and threw it up) I have to watch other kids playing around him incase they have cheesey fingers or have wiped their milk on their hands after drinking. Does anyone have the percentages or chances that he might grow out of this?

My son's EXACTLY the same as your daughter. He cannot have anything strawberry, not even imitation strawberries or anything that the juice from strawberries has touched. One time my MIL made a fruit salad with strawberries in it. I gave him a slice of apple that was sitting next to a strawberry, and he still broke out. Just like you, I can watch the rash spread. He also gets the rash down in his diaper area too. It also shows up extra where he sweats, behind his knees, elbows, armpits and neck!

My three year old is allergic to egg whites and lactose. (Blood allergy test.) So we do lactose free milk and no egg whites. So when baking a cake we use the cake mix and 1 12oz can of pop (any flavor) and mix the two together and bake like normal! I won't even make a cake any other way, same with the cupcakes for school.

So far we've noticed a bit of diarrhea after she's had coconut, so we're just not giving her any more for a while.

strawberries. only strawberries. and, if she has no clothes on, you can watch the rash follow the digestive tract. kind of interesting. once she swallows a strawberry, she immediately gets a rash on her neck and it slowly spreads down her belly.
however, the allergy may be like mine where it only affects her on an empty stomach. my brother gave her a strawberry over christmas, just after a meal, and she was fine

My son is allergic to eggs and juice. He is on a low sugar diet. I think he must be allergic to some kind of dye in food also because ranch dressing and any kind of cheese that touches the outside of his mouth breaks it out and turns bright red. Hopefully they will outgrow some of this!

My son is allergic to tree nuts, molds, dust, and cats! I have to read the labels when grocery shopping as well to make sure the food wasn't processed with nuts. It us hard to find snack foods, etc. that he can eat! My hubby bought Oreos the other day and I couldn't give him one:( Two year olds don't get why and it's frustrating on both our ends. I know how you feel. I have recently found some allergy free cookies at a local Wegmans grocery store and cereals that are fine fir him. Check around and read all labels:)
