I posted this on the food allergy board, but it doesn't look like it has much activity, so I thought I'd check here too.
My 2-year-old was diagnosed today with milk, wheat, and peanut allergies. I originally made the appointment for suspected peanut allergy... I gave him a spoonful of peanut butter a couple weeks ago and his face got hives, turned all red around his mouth. The positive tests for milk and wheat came as more of a surprise. The child is OBSESSED with milk... He always drinks way more than he should, and he also lives on cheese and yogurt, so that could be quite an adjustment. I told the doctor how he eats/drinks dairy pretty regularly and doesn't seem to have a problem, and she said he might be okay, but that we need to avoid all three for several months and then try to slowly reintroduce them one at a time.
His reactions have been mostly hives/redness, not anaphylaxis, and she thinks he's at relatively low risk for anaphylaxis... But we did get some epipens to have on hand just in case.
So now, I'm just wondering if anyone knows of any good foods or resources to find foods that are free of wheat, milk, and peanuts...??
