New here! I didn't realize there was a section for allergies or else I would have been here earlier!
Who- DS (ebf)
How old- 5 months
What allergies- Ugh. I feel like we're constantly trying to figure it out. We did a scratch test when DS was 3 months old, and he reacted to only peanuts, tree nuts, and strawberries. The rest of his allergies we suspect via a TED.. dairy, soy, EGG, WHEAT, rice, TOMATOES, corn, and pork. The all caps ones are the ones that we had really bad reactions too.. bloody stool for several days, red red red diaper rash, eczema, and horrible painful crying.
DS also had a general blood test (pedi was concerned that I was basically eating nothing and DS still had mucousy stool) and it showed an elevated level of IgE.
We've also had major bfing issues because of his posterior tongue-tie. We only learned about it a couple weeks ago, and since learning about it, we flew to NYC to have it corrected. We immediately saw an improvement in his stool. We suspect that because of his faulty suck, DS was getting an overload of foremilk, and that was irritating his gut even more. I was so encouraged that I ate a banana this week... he got yucky stool, diaper rash, and he now has eczema. I guess I need to add bananas to the list.
