    We're still trying to figure out exactly what is going on but Linnea has a fairly severe GI reaction to milk, eggs, wheat, corn, soy, and amaranth and the list keeps growing. We are hopefully going to find a new allergist soon. We just found a new ped who is taking our problems seriously so we will be going to a new pediatric GI as well as soon as their referral goes through.

    DS2 is allergic to peanuts. We have confirmed that (@age 19mths) with an allergist and carry the epipen. No need to use it so far!

    Allergic colitis. Eggs are bad, dairy looks like it just started within the past couple of months =(

    Coming up on age 3, and we seem to be adding, not deleting...

    Oh, and RAST says everything is just fine.

    DH, DS1 and I don't have any allergies. DS2 is a different story. He displayed "classic" dairy allergy / intollerance symptoms when he was around 4 weeks - EBF. I cut dairy out and it made a big difference. Over the seven following months, he would break out in hives while nursing. We had a scratch test done at 7/8 months and he was at 3+ (on a scale of 4) for eggs, wheat, carrots, potatoes, beef, corn, tomatoes, shellfish and peanuts. Ironically, he came up negative on dairy. The allergist looked at me and said "I don't know what you're going to eat" as I was still nursing him.

    At 15 months we went to Hopkins for testing and he had outgrown everything except egg, which he was 1.58 on a scale of 100 and peanuts which he was at 4.5 on a scale of 100. He does well with baked goods with egg and can even tolerate french toast, but scrambled eggs (i.e. straight eggs) breaks him out in hives. Tree nuts he was negative for. We are under strict orders to not introduce any peanuts or tree nuts until he is at least three and is in the clinical lab setting at Hopkins.

    Knox is allergic to milk, eggs, peanuts, plus other non-food stuff. (dogs, grasses, etc.)

    He has never had milk. Won't drink it. The pediatric allergist said that he probably
    self-regulated himself. He is able to eat dairy and eggs as an ingredient in foods.
    But I have never given him milk or eggs on their own.

    I am also allergic to peanuts. My only food allergy. Plus every tree, grass, weed,
    pollen known to man.

    My DH is not allergic to a single thing! (He was skin-tested last year.)

    My daughter has never been tested but I would venture to say that she has
    seasonal allergies.
