My little boy was allergic to many things when we started weaning him. He eventually got tested after he'd grown out of most of them (at 19 months) but remained quite allergic to egg. He would get really bad hives on skin contact whenever he got near any dairy, eggs, tomato, nectarines etc etc. At three and a quarter, he still comes up in hives on contact with egg
With my little girl, we were a lot more cautious, and she started showing early signs of being upset by dairy in my diet through my milk. When we started weaning, I put various things on her skin, it became apparent she reacted to dairy, and quite badly to egg. But also, after eating toast, it became evident she has a problem with wheat too.
I was mostly dairy free from about 2 weeks, and I have been rigidly dairy, egg and wheat free for about a month now (and obviously, so has L). But I thought I'd skin test butter on her arm again yesterday, and no reaction at all. Then this morning I tested creamy yoghurt on her cheek, and again, no reaction. She also had no reaction to tomato when I tried that on her skin!
Does this mean she's grown out of it? Once A stopped reacting on his skin, it generally meant he could eat it fine, but he was quite a bit older?
I'm thinking I should reintroduce dairy to my diet first? If so, how do I got about it? Milk in tea first, or butter or a slice of cheese?
