So my DD had an allergic reaction to eggs a few weeks ago and her pedi referred her to a pediatric allergist for testing. It's tomorrow morning.
Can you please update about your experience with the allergist?!
I would love to know what we should expect I'm asking my pediatrician to test DD at a year. She has shown reactions to my breastmilk after I consumed eggs, nuts and dairy.
My pediatrician said they would do a blood test. Good luck! I know that there are definitely different thoughts on this topic. Our pediatrician went with the blood test only approach right now. We found out my son is highly reactive to eggs and as I'm still feeding him breastmilk that means no eggs for me too.
Personally I just wasn't a fan of the skin testing at this point. And we were able to get what we needed from the blood test.
We carry Epipens and will be watching his diet closely this year. We plan to retest next year.The nation's major allergy organizations agree on how best to diagnose and manage food allergies. The "practice parameters," from a panel of allergy experts, are a state-of-the-art guide on how to Author: Daniel J. Denoon. Jul 16, · Allergy is a condition characterised by a level of sensitivity greater than normal to a specific substance or group of substances. These substances, called allergens, trigger a response in susceptible individuals. The allergens may be found in the ticks, moulds, food, pollen, pets, and dust mites. A Author: Lybrate. Definition of Allergy. The terms “allergy” and “atopy” refer to the presence of clinical symptoms that occur following an interaction between allergen-specific IgE and exposure to an allergen.5 Though specific IgE is necessary for a reaction to be called “allergic,” other mechanisms can cause similar symptoms making it necessary to test for the antibodies when making a diagnosis.
My daughter just had skin allergy testing done a july of weeks ago because of a reaction she had to eggs. The allergist did the skin test on her back on I think 6 different items including egg.
They'll first take off their shirt and clean their back with u. Then number with a marker the different places they'll be scraping the skin. The test itself was very quick and she hated more being held and text allowed to move than the actual test. The scrape they do is pretty small. The only unexpected thing that happened is while she did have a reaction to egg, as we expected, she had allergy extreme reaction to the antihistamine.
Everyone is supposed to have a reaction to the antihistamine, it's used as the control, but my daughter ended up very quickly getting a rash that spread up her neck. The allergist have her some Benadryl to help and it went away within the hour. test
I think this is pretty rare, and the doctor thinks it's partly because my lo allrgy such sensitive skin. I'm really happy we did the test so that we can have something to compare when we test again in a couple of years the diameter of the reaction on skin to see if she has outgrown it.
We're allowed to test giving her small amounts of items that have eggs extremely cooked like pasta so it's not as restrictive as I initially thought. Hope this helps! I'm a RN and use to work at an allergist office where I conducted skin tests on children. The pricks are very quick. Also any toy or soothie to help comfort or distract them is a good idea to bring.
My son started having life threatening allergies about months ago so we had to get the skin testing done last month. The RAST blood test is crap, it's not accurate whatsoever, and an allergist would also tell you the same.
It said my son had 0 allergies to anything ummm I don't think so, he just had problems breathing from something last week so there is something he's allergic to. No vomit or diarrhea. Took him to the allergist who said he's most likely to outgrow it and sent us for a blood test to confirm allergy and severity. Still waiting on results, He did not give me an epi pen because he said hives are a minor reaction. Vomit and difficulty breathing would be a more severe reaction.
This according to him. For now we're avoiding eggs although he eats stuff with egg baked just fine. Could it be a gag reflex on your LO? Mine threw up yesterday morning and this morning after eating his breakfast followed by banana.

He's eaten those before and never had an issue so I'm here scratching my head. Allerhy, I would mention the egg thing to your doctor just so that you know if he's allergic or not for sure. Sorry, just noticed you said diarrhea too. Unless she coincidentally got a stomach jjuly, it sounds like an allergy or sensitivity.
My mom is a nanny to a baby that used to be ok with milk products and one day all of a sudden became allergic hives and diarrhea to even baked stuff with milk. Now she has an epi pen. Hang in there momma and take comfort in that if it's any allergy, egg is highly likely to be outgrown.
My LO a,lergy two hives with peanut butter and I'm devastated thinking he's allergic since that qllergy is not likely to be outgrown: so I know the feeling when you find your baby "may" have a food allergy. Lara have you tried baking the eggs? I bet he would do better with them if you wanted to try it.
It doesn't seem like my friends son 2 next month is going to outgrow his egg allergy anytime soon but he does great with the baked eggs or anything with baked eggs like cake. Not that she is feeding him cake everyday but she was super worried about his birthday cake when they first discovered his allergy.

I haven't tried but thanks for the suggestion. Since he can eat baked goods july eggs in it I hope that will be ok.
Hoping the allergy test comes out saying his allergy is mild. Test baby she's 1 now my mom watches can't tolerate anything with milk at all the poor thing. My son has an egg allergy. My SO convinced me it was coincidence allergy I gave him some cheese and spinach omelet. He threw the rest up within alleryy hour. He was unsettled, had some diarrhoea and developed a rash on his torso.
