We later found out he was allergic to the penicillin. I am still breastfeeding and we both have become vegetarians after the incident. Whenever I try to introduce any animal protein, into my diet, esp. eggs he has problems breathing. It seems as if his airways become constricted and swollen. I was wondering if there are any mothers out there with the same problems or have any advice on the matter.

My eldest daughter had a reaction to cows milk her eyelids swelled up one evening after she had eaten some cereal with milk, then rubbed her eyes! quite scary but it settled without medical intervention and we went dairy free, now both my girls are dairy free, and I have breastfed them both. On discussion with my new health visitor (after moving house) she suggested discussing with a dietition. This would certainly be worth doing and discussing measures like an eppi pen etc. Good luck and I am sure all will be ok. tx

Well after his ten day course he was eating chicken soup that he has eaten a million times before but this time his whole body swelled up and he was in so much pain he couldn't crawl. It wasn't until after 2months did his hives finally go away. He has been vegetarian since. My Dad was allergic to penicillin also. So it maybe genetic. I really don't know.
