Fantastic idea!!!
Well done Robinw.

Just seen this thread as I dont usually look at SiteStuff - that illustrates your point doesnt it Robin?! Anyway, yes it is a good idea, please, I often miss threads (tend to avoid food ones too as they make me hungry).

would love a specific topic for allergies.Ds nut/egg allergy with excema.

I would certainly like to have somebody to speak to about eczema or exchange tips about how to keep it controlled... We have had a very difficult year...

Hi Robin, the computer hs been playing up so I havent been near Mumsnet for a day or 2. The Xmas pud I found was in Sainsburys, there isnt a Waitrose round here (we're not posh enough ). I'll ask my Mum, she shops for England and will have visited every supermarket for miles.

This probiotic stuff is very interesting. I am hoping to conceive again soon and am desperate to do as much as I can to ensure no2 doesnt suffer as ds has.

Chandra, we have had a very tough time coping with ds' eczema. It is now virtually clear (I would have said this was impossible 18 months ago) and have tried a huge range of treatments. One of the hardest things was having noone to talk to, all my friends had babies with perfect skin and they had no idea what we were going through. You'll get loads of support here though!

Just read this thread (don't usually read site stuff) and agree that it would be helpful to have allergies seperate.

bunny2 · 23/12/2003 21:47

Oh yuk Robin. I would do almost anything but not worms. I was thinking more along the lines of probiotic yoghurt.

bunny2 · 23/12/2003 21:47

Good about the pud.

I'd give ds worms to see if they worked. I'd happily be a test subject for the research. After all if they didn't work they could always kill them off. Could they do a double blind trial or would it be obvious that the placebo group hadn't been given the worms?

Loads of my friends don't think twice about giving their babies powerful prescription drugs because they spit up a bit or antibiotics for a runny nose. Compared to that I think worms seem a pretty harmless way to treat kids with serious allergy problems.

Hi, was there any news about an allergy section?
