more food allergies?
So, Abby had a food panel at her doctor appointment on Monday to see if she is still allergic to eggs and nuts. I was hoping she would have outgrown her allergies, but they just called and said she still is severely allergic to eggs and nuts, but is moderately allergic to milk and soy. What? For lunch today, Abby had a cheese stick, apple, soy nut butter sandwich, and milk. She eats a lot of soy because she can't eat nuts, and she gets a ton of dairy. She has never had any reactions. Could her stomach be hurting when she eats/drinks milk and soy and I not know it? Ahh! Her doctor said she should only consume them now in moderation. I am thinking about going to an allergist because I want to make sure that is right. With egg, nut, milk, and soy allergies (and acid reflux restrictions), there's not a whole lot left. The girl likes to eat, but I'm running out of things that I can give her.
Any ideas on the milk allergy thing? I thought kids usually outgrew milk allergies as they got older. She gets a food panel every year, and this is the first time soy and milk were a problem.
