Ds is allergic to eggs, but he didn't have this drug. Thought I would say hi and bump your message up anyway. Is the drug related to the allergy?

Hi, I dont know if it is, I gues I am just trying to find an explanation for her allergy as no one else in the family has it (there is history of asthma an eczema, i know all can be related)

Did you eat eggs and or mayonnaise when you were pregnant?

(I recall having an egg sandwich that wasn exactly hard boiled, and i still ate mayo - Helmans, which is pasterised so i was told it was okay...)

The reason you have to cook eggs in pregnancy is to avoid food poisoning. This is not related to allergy.

I did eat eggs, lots of them actually, I really craved them. But if I was pregnant again and not still breastfeeding bob (have to avoid them for that reason now) I would still eat eggs until the last 8 weeks.
