My 16mo DS is allergic to a whole host of foods. He vomits/hives to Milk, Eggs, Peas and gets contact hives from Wheat, Soy, and Dog and TONS of other unidentified foods. He has positive prick and/or IgE tests also for Peanut, Almond, Coconut, Corn and Pollen. He is 60-80% breastfeed, and I do not restrict my diet. He has asthma (episodes when sick), chronic runny nose, and very mild excema (under control right now).
My doc says to feed him foods that he can tolerate eating, even though he gets hives when the foods touch his skin. She says that it will help him eventually to become tolerant. She does not want to test him for anything except what makes him vomit and environmental allergies. Is this normal advice?
I was thinking about giving him more raw foods while avoiding Milk, Eggs, Nuts, Tree Nuts, and All Grains. He eats meats and fish.
I have been researching the immune system, balancing the gut, chiropractic care, and other alternative therapies. I am curious to hear if anything besides prescription medication has helped you reverse or manage your child's allergies and asthma.
