Baked goods with egg

Baked goods with egg

My son (12 months) has a documented egg allergy. He has had hives a few times, always from eating or touching scrambled eggs. I did give him baked goods before we knew and he didn't get hives. His allergist said he "probably" can have eggs in baked goods as long as they're baked 350+ for at least 20 minutes.

My question is, how would I know if it was giving him a mild reaction? Just because he didn't get hives doesn't mean his tummy doesn't hurt, right?!

Does having a peanut allergy mean that you will also be allergic to tree nuts.

Does having a peanut allergy mean that you will also be allergic to tree nuts.

My daughter had an allergy test done which came up positive for eggs, milk, soy, dust mites, dander, mould, grass, wheat and her highest being peanuts. So I just want to find out if tree nuts will also affect her since it was not specifically mentioned on her allergy test results.

Does anyone here have a Histamine intolerance?

Does anyone here have a Histamine intolerance?

I'm wheat and dairy free (dairy causes tummy issues and wheat gives me nose bridge pain an hour after which I am told is an allergy as body is releasing Histamine causing that type of reaction. It also then triggers a migraine on build up). I get constipation from free from breads and been advised to trial not re heating foods or having leftovers along with staying away from high histamine foods for a couple of weeks.
