My son was diagnosed with a white potato and tomato allergy a year ago and after a reaction we cut bell peppers then all nightshades. We just did a full round of testing and added to our list. He's 2 and had digestive problems and the skin/itching reactions to the nightshades. Most everything is easy to avoid but the potato. I keep finding more and more things that are derived or filled with potato but I can never get a complete list. It's even harder with… read more
I would like to see if anyone else out in the world has a cane sugar allergy. No one believes me when I tell them I have an allergy to refined and cane sugar so it would be nice to meet someone else and share information!!
For so long I have been searching for a allergy sufferer of citrus just like myself. Find shopping for food ridiculously hard as most things contain concentrated lemon juice etc. Would just like a friend who understands how much of a pain it is!

But... the first time I used it, I had a severe reaction similar to when I am exposed to corn. I also had another product that I hadn't bought before… read more
My son is 91/2 months old and is severely allergic to dairy. He cannot consume anything with dairy. He has an epi pen as well. If milk touches him ( yogurt, milk, etc ) touches him he breaks out I hives. The other day he put a friends toy in his mouth and got hives all over his mouth! I'm suppose to go back to work shortly. My question is. How do you cope with this? How does daycare handle these situations if he can't even touch toys that have been in contact with dairy! It's not… read more
My baby boy has had bad reactions every time he has had his immunisations. This time round (16 weeks) he has basically cried for 2 days squirming and arching his back a lot, needed to be cuddled and nursed due to stomach pain. I've been reading and have found that most vaccines contain egg and some contain lactose. He is allergic to dairy so possibly a reason he reacted so bad if that was in the vaccines given but also thinking he could have reacted to egg? We are… read more
