does anyone know how to account for the following? we had my daughter allergy tested and they said that she was a 4+ on eggs, and pretty much nothing on all other foods. so, we have been slowly adding things (like soy/dairy) back into her diet since those were what were causing her issues. well, I've made her pudding before with rice milk and we have had no problems. today, my hubby said, make it with real milk, just so we know 100% for sure that her body can handle it. that was fine with me, so that it would be one less thing for me to worry about when we are out or at other people's houses and such. well, I fed it to her (she breaks out from just touching eggs, so each new thing I feed to her first) and her entire mouth, cheeks, and chin are now covered in welts/hives/rash. gave her benadryl and it's going away. but, how likely is it that the allergist was wrong? he did the skin test and the blood test and all came back neg. I will not be doing (dairy) again..the only thing left to try is straight soy...and i'm not even sure how to do that now (or even if I want to) I seem to ramble a lot here..thanks for letting me!

thanks! i love her to death, but she is a handful. been walking since ten mths. she's 13mths now...I should update the pic. the doc just wanted us to "try" the foods that she had issues with before but came up neg in the testing. he said she should have no probs. *sigh* makes me glad I fought to keep her on the hypo allergenic formula until she's two yrs. still crossing my fingers that I can pump enough for both when #2 gets here.

it was the exact same pudding.


do you have any books you recommend? our town is little and our library only has so much, and the things I have read only seem to repeat the parts that are confusing. I am hoping it will be easier when she is older so she can tell us more about how her body feels in response to foods. I guess I will just leave new foods alone for awhile. she has a pretty wide range of stuff she does eat (esp for her age) and until I can get a grip on how all this is, it will prob be best for all of us (and you all won't have me griping here either) I just never had any interest in medicine or doctor type stuff and I feel like I almost have to be one to understand what is going on with her. thanks for all the info!
