My son is about to be a year old in a couple weeks and I’m freaking out about the transition from formula to cows milk. I’ve already tried introducing him to some dairy products like cheese,yogurt and other foods that might have dairy in it. He hasn’t had a problem until recently I gave him American cheese, he pooped 5 times in one day causing him a diaper rash. Is he possibly allergic to cows ... More
My soon-to-be 5 yr old is allergic to colors on the icing cream. His Birthday is just round the corner. I would like him to choose his cake but I want to make sure I give him options that would suit his health. Looking for recommendations for alternate Birthday cakes. TIA.
Started my baby on foods (BLW) about a month ago at just over 6 months. Since we started, he’s had a rash on his stomach that comes and goes, can’t really find a pattern or specific food that is the cause. He doesn’t seem to itch or be bothered and the pediatrician said it was just sensitive skin. I put aquaphor on it daily. I’m worried this is just the beginning of some sort of allergy (like I... More
Hi all, my son is going to turn 1 in a week and for the past 2 months he has had a runny and itchy nose. We just moved, and i guess thats the only new thing in his life. We have a cat at home but we have her since he was born. Not a cold and not every day Any thoughts? Thanks
My daughter has drool rash and I might have gone a bit overboard with the Aquaphor. I’m thinking they are just clogged pores.
I have not introduced peanut butter to my 14 month old because he’s allergic to eggs and dairy and has really bad dry skin/eczema and I’ve been so worried about trying it. I on the other hand feel horrible because his pediatrician keeps telling me at every appointment to do it. Has anyone else introduced it late and no allergy or am I setting him up for a peanut allergy? Side note, he is breast... More
I found a study that was done in the UK that linked a cows milk allergy to unexplained sleeplessness in babies. I am trying it with my 17 month old to see if it helps because she currently wakes up anywhere from 5-13 times a night. Has anyone had success with this? Any tips on other foods or drinks to use for substitute or to stay away from? Thank you!
I call his doc and explain best I could on this rash. They think it’s his eczema. So they said if it spreads come in if not it’s that. Give him 1.5 Benadryl and rub Vaseline all over him..... idk this seem so much. Has anybody eczema gotten this bad. He’s only 17 months...... it’s also on his chest area.
My almost 2 year old has a milk protein allergy. We have been giving him a hypoallergenic formula since I stopped breastfeeding when he turned 1. We want to switch him to another milk. We tried hemp milk but he wouldn’t drink it. He can’t do any nut milk since he’s allergic to nuts. He’s also slightly allergic to peas so i don’t want to do Ripple. What do you think the healthiest Milk alternati... More
My son has been having hives for 4 days now. I can’t seem to figure out why he’s getting them. Has never had an allergic reaction before. They come and go in different areas of the body. I feel like I just look at him and he gets them. He’s being really sensitive, any tips to help treat them?? He is taking Benadryl.
She also gets mrsa recurrent infections in summer especially but cold weather seems to make ezcema worse too. How do you deal with that? Dr didnt seem concerned about the ezcema part but i now can see it is all related. We do bleach baths twice a week and take probiotics. Her infections have stopped since then but ezcema flare ups on her cheeks are ln the rise now.
My 2 year old has just started Budesonide via a nebulizer. Backstory (long sorry): last year in November he was hospitalized with just a really bad cold. He ended up being intubated for about 3 weeks. It was terrible. He was fine over the summer but I noticed in Late September he had a pretty consistently runny nose and light cough. He didn’t seem to have a cold though. Went to an asthma... More
So my 2 year old has been on Zyrtec since September and it’s helped a ton. Fast forward to November 15th and he got a bad cold. All the symptoms have subsided and he’s in good spirits but the cough is still lingering and our allergist (who hasn’t ruled out asthma) prescribed Singulair. Anyone have any luck with it? Last year he was hospitalized and intubated due to a really bad respiratory i... More
