Just out of curiosity, when you reheat the same foods a few days later, do you microwave it as well?

Also, MOST peanut oils don't have peanut protein. So the reaction to chips might not have been from the oil, rather something else in the chip.
Why is your baby on zyrtec? Because you can't figure out the source of the reactions? If it were me...I would take him off of that and really do some serious food trials.

For some reason, they didn't mention cutting out soy yet. That may just make me crazy! Hopefully, my baby will get some relief, though. He isn't eating any of those foods, beyond a random cracker or cereal o, which will be easy to cut out. I'd already made sure any packaged foods I bought for him had minimal ingredients and were free from dairy, soy, and eggs. It seems like it's all up to me changing my own diet at this point. The tests for broccoli, green beans, and pear came back negative. I realize the test isn't 100% accurate, but maybe he had been exposed to one of the major allergens at the same time, so we were mistaken about what he was responding to. We're going to start with the major stuff then come back to this other stuff. Our three dogs are no longer allowed in his room (and we removed his rug). The rest of the house has hardwoods or tile (not even a throw rug), so we will be cleaning a ton in the future, and putting down a clean blanket for floortime play. We had all the vents cleaned this fall, plus a new heat/AC system installed this winter, so there's less airborn stuff circulating around. The doctor wants me to work on cutting stuff out of my diet, and obviously not feeding them to my son, and see if there's improvement in a few weeks. I'm crossing my fingers that he'll outgrow this stuff and that it won't get any worse!
