Good news

For the label-readers amongst us, a place to marvel at food manufacturers' ability to add milk powder to everything.

Good news

I just thought I'd share that we had The Boy tested over the summer (the last time was about two years ago) and he didn't react to any of his previous allergens - I thought it was a bit of a myth that they grow out of allergies but it appears they do. We are delighted and I just wanted to let you know that it's well worth continuing to test as they get older. Here's hoping for similarly good news for the others on here.

Fantastic! So happy for you. Koala seems to be growing out of some of his too. Apparently 80% of people outgrow dairy allergies but only 10% outgrow peanut allergies. Interesting.

His were to sesame and fish, I doubt there's much data on those :-) glad to hear koala is progressing too.

Wow! That is great news! Have you had a chance to do any oral challenges yet? A is/was allergic to dairy and eggs but he's pretty much grown out of the egg one, which is great. I haven't tried him to touching or eating raw or undercooked egg, but he's fine to eat egg in any cooked form now.

Dairy is still out though :(. He had his last skin prick test in May and the results were contradictory. From that test the specialist said that the reaction was almost down to zero and he should be fine with most things except maybe pure, uncooked milk. But he gets diarrhoea from just eating shop bought biscuits and cakes etc containing dairy. Some are ok but some not, probably depending on the specific ingredients. This is probably an intolerance now, rather than an allergy. But then he has also had an actual allergic reaction (clearing throat, itchy eyes, runny nose) from eating just a scraping of goats cheese, which doesn't fit with the almost negative skin prick test. Still quite intolerant to soya too, but that has never shown up as an allergy, just an intolerance.

He's had a fair bit of fish since we got the all clear, he's struggling a bit with the taste of it as he hasn't had fish for years now but he desperately wants to like it! We haven't done sesame yet but have a dim sum lunch planned on Sunday which should take care of that, he's so looking forward to trying all the forbidden dumplings.

Interesting that he still reacts after a negative skin test elaruu - got me a bit worried now but he had zero reaction and they did them twice so I'm hoping they are reliable. He always used to vomit as a reaction when he ate fish which the specialist said was a good reaction as his body was getting rid of it to minimise his exposure to the allergen. It's frustrating how different all these reactions are and how unpredictable it is.

You sound far too concerned and conscientious a parent to ever fail your child. If it's a bit stoppy/starty for now that's ok as milk is still the primary food. I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your problem but Sandytoes has made some useful suggestions. I would try GP/HV for some support. Best of luck.
