A few weeks ago my 6 month old son's congestion got really bad. I (thought!) I ate very little allergy-related food. But noticed that I ate Bragg's with almost everything, had been eating wheat about once a week, and started eating tempeh about twice a week. So, I cut out soy/wheat, and maybe noticed a slight difference.


I ate a ton of almonds one day and thought I noticed a slight rash on my son's face, and his congestion was a bit worse. So I cut out almonds, too. He seemed to not be getting worse. (I have nnot cut out eggs.)


Yesterday I ate a considerable amount of almonds around lunch time, some ahi tuna (he didn't seem to react the one time I ate salmon, and the other time I ate tilapia) and around 2am he started projectile vomiting. He's throwing up a considerable amount of mucous, and it is now 2:00pm. He has vomited several times and it smells biley. His poop is greenish yellow and mucousy. And I am freaking out a bit. No fever, and he is acting okay.


My tummy seems a bit off too, although no vomiting, it feels rumbly and my burps are a bit on the sour side.



Does this seem like an almond allergy? Could it have been a combo of the fish and almonds? I would love some feedback soon. Thanks:)

Mama to oneone, and a brand new!

I'm sorry for the vomiting! FWIW, I can only offer the advice to rub any suspect food on his back after lightly scratching the surface. This is how I identify all suspected food because my son has very reactive skin. My results correlate to the Allergist's skin prick testing. My DS does not have noticeable reactions to everything that causes him a rash or hives, but Milk, Soy, and Egg cause projectile vomiting when he eats them. When I eat them, it causes him to wake up more at night. If I don't eat them, he sleeps through the night.


Best wishes.


* I don't know how severe a reaction could be from just applying it to the skin, but please use all precaution.
