Hello! [ profile] dorianegray told me that you were an LJ friend when we met in town yesterday, and I've added you here - hope that's okay. (I'm "schrapknits" on Ravelry, and Hallie in This Is Knit, if that helps any.)

Hello! Not sure if you recognize me from the breastfeeding community, but you are always so amazing at helping me with allergy problems, and I don't feel like they are so breastfeeding related anymore so thought I would just ask you directly. I hope that is ok?

Anyways, I know you have dealt with allergies, and I think your kids have outgrown at least some of them, correct? Well, my son is almost two, and we have confirmed dairy, wheat, and egg are no goes. He still nurses, and I have allergies to for sure dairy and wheat, as well as peanuts, and I even suspect at least a sensitivity to eggs for myself as well. So strict avoidance is no problem on those. The only thing is that recently Brody has had some rashy spots and eczema type patches which look just like a much milder reaction than he had to egg in my diet. The only thing I can think that has been different in his diet is that he has had a bit of chocolate lately that isn't a regular thing we have, and that he has been drinking more almond milk. (almonds aren't an issue for me, and that is my favorite milk substitute). At what point do you decide that complete avoidance is necessary? I really believe its the almond because the patches appeared before the chocolate was consumed. Do you believe that if there doesn't seem to be a reaction to a little bit of almond in his diet then a little bit is ok? Or do you think it is all about complete avoidance? I am just torn because maybe he is reacting but I am not noticing it when he is exposed to less, and maybe I am just really hoping I don't have to give up my only milk substitute that I have liked so far. But, he has had a lot more of it lately, and it seems to correlate with the rash being so much worse and also seems to increase his gassiness. I really struggle because even our allergist says things like "well you have to weigh the pros and cons, and your diet is important too, so we don't want you cutting out too many things. If the reaction isn't that bad then you can leave that food in the diet" but I have cut those things (wheat) out completely because I felt the reaction was that bad and that we are in fact still able to get a balanced diet without those things. That sort of seems like ignorant advice to me, but we don't have much accessability to other foods up here, so maybe she didn't think I could eat healthy enough? I don't know, this is really rambly, and I am just hoping for some guidance/understanding/venting to someone who gets it, and you have always been so amazing to me with all my questions in the past. Thanks for taking the time to read. :)
