hello everyone!

my name is beth, i have an almost 5 year old (as well as an almost 2 year old and one on the way coming in march) who is allergic to tons of foods and seasonal allergies.
drew has had food allergies since he was 6 months of age. at 16 months of age is when he started showing food allergies to lots of things. had to ER trips one via ambulance ..the first one was to greenbeans and peas..the second to eggs...of course he had this food in the past.

we get him tested every year ..and just got our results back recently for this year...he's still allergic to everything. it's just so frustrating ...and i shouldn't get my hopes up every year that he's outgrown something...but it's hard not too.

he's allergic to: milk (casein and whey), eggs (white and yolks), peanuts, tree nuts, peas, greenbeans, strawberries.

and tons of seasonal allergies as well.

his little brother has NO allergies of any kind.

Hey Beth, Welcome to the Allergic Living Forum.

Oh boy, that is a load of allergies.
Many of us here are dealing with several allergies in the family.
So do not feel alone.

Hope all's well with your pregnancy - getting down to the wire.

Look forward to sharing ideas and chatting with you. :)
