What fantastic news - congratulations! I've read about your ds on here before, and my own ds is a very allergic 9 year old. This gives me some much needed hope smile.

Did he like the Parmesan?

Brilliant BabyB! I used to post on here a lot more until I became a member of some Facebook groups. I remember your son and some of his reactions.

So glad to hear that there is hope. Dd1 is 7 next week and allergies seem as bad as ever sad

That's good to hear. I know you've had a hell of a lot to deal with.

DS is 10 and I do hope that puberty reduces his two serious allergies (kiwi and pine nut). Here's to hormones smile.

Oh this has cheered me up a lot. DD has much less serious reactions, but I was beginning to give up hope already on the CMPA front (at just 3.5). So many people tell you it should all be over by 2 or 3 -- I'd never heard 7. Good luck with the rest!

Oh that's amazing babybarrister!!

My DS is 10 too and I've given up hope of him growing out of any more of his allergies.

There is hope yet smile.

We've just started giving DS and DD probiotics.
Which are you using BB?

trixymalixy Mon 03-Apr-17 20:42:34

I was thinking of getting DS involved in the gut project

Oh don't worry. I'm not expecting a magic cure!

I've had a look at those probiotics and some of it is from a dairy source. Was your DS anaphylactic to dairy?

trixymalixy Tue 04-Apr-17 09:42:02

I'd love DS to go on one of those weekends. He'd hate it though!

Congratulations! We've also recently been able to introduce dairy and egg and wheat (at almost 5, despite failing them about 8 months prior). We were using symprove probiotics if anyone is looking for dairy free ( also they're not digested. In the stomach Iike a lot are). Still holding out hope for free nuts and peanuts to disappear too... thanks OP for giving us hope!

I've been looking into probiotics too - the Australian study mentioned a particular strain and I need to find one that is ok for egg and dairy allergies too...haven't looked properly yet. It's on my list of things to do over the next week!

Harverina, we had multiple other allergies too (incl dairy and soy) but symprove worked for us. You can start on the full dose for about a few weeks then drop right back to about a quarter dose for maintenance which helps. Can also be given to babies, but needs to be taken without any other food so the stomach acids don't start digesting them (like they do most probiotics). Their customer service was really helpful when I spoke with them to determine suitability and amounts for ds
