My daughter is 15months and appears to have multiple allergies including cows milk, red lentils, peas, lactose intolerance (and god only knows what else)! We are waiting to be seen at the allergy clinic.
Anyway long story short, I gave her mince and potatoes tonight which had bisto powder in it. She has had bisto before but in a smaller quantity. About one hour later she developed extremely red skin around her mouth and her exzema on her fingers flared up.
Previous to this she also had some raisons but she has had these before without a reaction. Dont have a clue what has caused this as the box on the bisto powder does not say milk, only says it was made in a factory containing milk powder! Any ideas are welcome!
Dont think she has ever had celery. Is a celery allergy common? I cant understand why she was able to tolerate the bisto the last time I gave her it though. Last time it was 2 teaspoonfuls added to stew. This time it was about 4 tablespoonfuls added to mince. Do you think quantity would make a difference? (Stupid question) Think we are gonna have a fun few years trying out different foods!
To date, we have limited her diet as we have been aware of her difficulties with diary, she also has difficulties with lumps so hasn't had breads etc. (Vomits at lumps)
Bisto original! To top it all off, I was at DD G.P's today and he is off the opinion that she should no longer be getting lactose free milk on prescription. Now I know that she is 15 months, however she loves her milk and i cannot give her anything else. He then said that it can be purchased over counter. Again, fair enough! However, I feel that if a child genuinely has health issues then they should be entitled to this on prescription. Long story short, he agreed to continue giving it to us until she is seen at the allergy clinic. Am I being greedy? Just feel that the health service has let us down a bit since she was born. They failed to give us much help regarding her feeding, even though she was lactose intolerant, had severe reflux etc. Then they failed to diagnose her dislocated hip, resulting in her going into a body cast for 3 months and a brace for another 3. Maybe I'm being selfish, but I nearly feel they owe us one!
Lactofree milk is an alternative - myself and DH have it as I have a lactose intolerance (not allergy just get the swollen tummy and horrific runs!) you can also have gruyere I think and a couple of other cheeses as they are lactose free - look on the lactofree website though and any other regarding lactose intolerance.
Shes ok with wheat I presume? Normal bisto has wheat in and my son can't have it. He can have bisto best though. This certainly doesnt have wheat and so may be worth a look as it may have less other stuff in it as well
