No, not everything you take by mouth crosses the milk barrier. However, foods do. My ds gets a head to toe rash if I eat milk, eggs, nuts or berries. Do make sure the allergist you ultimately settle on understands breastfeeding and how it all "works." LLL would be a great resource for suggestions of docs who understand and help with that stuff. The leaders can't make suggestions, but once the meeting is closed, you can put it to the group and I am sure that you'll get some suggestions!
