Has anyone ever had experience with an allergy ring bleeding? Is that even what this sounds like?<br><br>
DS 17months old is allergic to milk, he was given eggs cooked with milk 2 days ago. He got the typical allergy ring soon after then. Today, the area is completely raw and bleeding. He also has some spots of yeast, which is not uncommon for him.<br><br>
So what does this sound like to you and how should we treat it? Poor little guy cries everytime we go near the area.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Should be concerned about a possible egg allergy too? This was the first time he ever had scrambled eggs.

sounds like possibly eggs as well to me<br>
ds2 responds with an allergy ring. if he's managed to get way too much of it (as opposed to "only" a little) the ring may be raw and even bleed yes

But if you already know he's allergic to dairy, it is possible that it's just a reaction to the milk, right? I guess at a later date, I'd try an egg without milk to see if it's egg too. Is the milk an IgE allergy or an intolerance? You cuold get a RAST test to see if he's got other allergies before trying different solids with him, no?

I agee, it could have just been from the milk. You said he was allergic to milk, but ate scrambled eggs with milk in them. I would wait until it clears up and then retry the eggs without milk. You can add a little water to them to scramble them up...makes them nice and fluffy!!

Thanks for all the replies! We will definitely wait to try eggs again. I have many food allergies myself (confirmed by RAST) so maybe I should be especially careful not to feed him things that I am allergic to also (which by the way does include eggs and milk).<br><br>
To answer a PP, his doc wants to wait until he is 2 to do the RAST. I am not really sure why. Maybe that is something I need to press a little harder on.<br><br>
Also to answer another PP, the ring is around the anus.

The RAST isn't very reliable until age 2. That's probably why the doctor doesn't want to do it yet, but it makes it difficult when you're trying to feed him. You might want to keep away from the top allergic foods, and go for lesser allergenic foods on the Joneja allergy chart.
