Even though it was such an awful experience, I am glad we did it. We found out he is allergic to A LOT of food, plus quite a few environmental allergies. Here's a list of the worst (our allergist didn't even worry about the mild reactions because he's so young and there were bigger problems to deal with): milk, egg, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish. He's also allergic to pretty much all grasses and trees, dust, mold, and pretty much all pets.
So now we need to find out which of the above food is making him sick. We know nuts and eggs, but I think the hidden culprit is the soy, which is in pretty much everything! If you don't believe me, start reading your labels. The allergist recommended cutting out all the above foods for 6-8 weeks,then reintroducing one at time every other week and keeping a journal of his symptoms. Sound like fun doesn't it? It may seem a little dramatic but I have already noticed a difference and it's only been a 5 days.
I'm still trying to figure out what exactly to feed the poor kid. Pretty much everything he likes is off limits. But he is doing so well. He really hasn't fought me on anything, which really surprised me. In fact, I made him some bread today ( nearly all bread from the store has soy) and he asked me if it had soy or eggs before he would eat it. He's already checking up on me. I'm going to have to cook from scratch a lot more often. So if any of you have any recipes with no soy, eggs or milk, please send them my way!
