I'm praying he might have grown out of one of his allergies.

Just writing a (long!) list of things to test for and questions to ask!!

Fingers x ed for you Trixy.
Just took dd2 for skin pricks.
Still allergic to egg yolk and white but should be able to give wheat a try.

I'm so delighted, it looks like DS might have started to outgrow his allergies!!

They didn't test for milk as he had a reaction to that recently, and he still tested positive to egg.

Soya, beans and peas are back on the menu, he also tested negative to chickpeas and sesame, but they want us to avoid them still and they will do a food challenge when he's a bit older as his reaction to those two was the most severe.

He also had a teeny positive reaction to lentils, I couldn't see the wheal but the nurse said she could feel a tiny bump, but it looks like he is outgrowing that as well.

Was so much more than I was hoping for!!

Thanks for keeping your fingers crossed girlsyearsapart, hope she gets on ok with wheat.

Fab news!
It's all a bit confusing isn't it?
My dd tested negative for milk this time but still have to avoid for at least 6 months.. Anyway. Onwards and upwards.. Do you ever dreamof the day you can just open the freezer and make a quick tea without thinking about it?? x
