What sorts of resources are there for new moms worried baby has allergies?

What sorts of resources are there for new moms worried baby has allergies?

My 7 month old has tried eggs twice, the first time she had a rash on her tummy and my doctor told me to give it a few months and try again because it might not be an allergy, she just might not have been ready, we did today and within 5 minutes she had a rash around her mouth. I took the eggs away and so far she is her normal self, that was about an hour ago and the rash is all ready almost gone.

Also wondering about a peanut allergy, my… read more

How do I get rid of leather cleaner smell from my car recently purchased.

How do I get rid of leather cleaner smell from my car recently purchased.

I recently have become very allergic to perfumes, candles, detergents etc. I also have multiple food allergies and become ill from smelling seafood, soy, peanut or tree nut being cooked or roasted. I recently bought a used vehicle I searched for about a year I found one I really liked and when I tried it I didn’t notice any odor. When I purchased the car I asked them not to use any strong cleaners or chemicals because I’m allergic. When I… read more

a big s.o.s to get support in the Netherlands please. Multiple foodallergies going on

a big s.o.s to get support in the Netherlands please. Multiple foodallergies going on

Hi all,

I've got multiple foodallergies going on.
For now I've been put on a glutenfree diet
Some of the products I've bought sadly contain nuts, gluten(yes it did) or is manufactured in an area where they also use nuts or peanuts.
I need a good list of products that are safe for me to use.
Going to ask my dietician also but personal experience is often better

Thank you so much

Love and Light

How do you cook with food allergies?

How do you cook with food allergies?

I'm slowly figuring out how to cook without chicken and dairy. Its harder than it looks. However when my airborne allergies flare up its best to avoid all my major and minor allergies. That would be chicken, corn, tomatoes, dairy, msg, whole wheat, & egg yolks. I've converted to Soy Milk, egg whites in a carton, and vegetable based stock or bullion. My question for you all is where can I find recipes that are common allergen free and easy to make?
Thanks!

Anyone's baby had reactions to vaccinations?

Anyone's baby had reactions to vaccinations?

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

Informing Wait Staff and Food Service People Regarding Food Allergies

Informing Wait Staff and Food Service People Regarding Food Allergies

When I go out to restaurants, the first thing I do before I order is inform the server that I have allergies to Gluten and Dairy; even if the restaurant didn't have a dedicated menu, which a lot don't, I can always scan the menu for stuff I can eat and ask for modifications if necessary. When I was out to eat with my fiance tonight, we went to a diner we usually go to once a year when we are in that locale, I tried to inform my server about my… read more

Does anyone else get hives and can’t determine why?

Does anyone else get hives and can’t determine why?

My hands, fingers, forearms itch like crazy all night long. I have hives all over my arms, shoulders, waist, chest. They come and go so quickly at times. The hives and itchy skin aren’t related, according to my allergist. I’ve been taking 20mg of Claritin AND 20mg of Zyrtec every day and they helped for a while but my symptoms are back again. Doctor prescribed a medication called doxepin and wants me to take two capsules at bedtime and stay on the Zyrtec but stop… read more

Due to my severe allergies I generally have no sense of smell, does anyone else deal with this?

Due to my severe allergies I generally have no sense of smell, does anyone else deal with this?

I was told to try wild Oregano tablets as supplements, sometimes this helps.
I've had 3 sinus surgeries which basically didn't work because the polyps grew back, there is only so much lining in our sinuses, so no more surgeries for me. I've tried literally every nose spray on the market, sinus douching. I find the salt rinses don't help, although one homeopathic rinse I tried a few years ago helped a little.
I literally… read more
