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.

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.
