Thanks
Yes it has been a tough go !
I didn't get many answers at all from the allergist , I'm assuming that it's just something everyone has to study themselves. It's very hard though ! Especially when I have to take everyone of his favorite foods away ... I feel like I'm standing in a giant grocery store reading labels to all this food that he can't eat now and I can't buy :?

I definitely have to buy a few books as I love to read but am not the greatest at looking up things on-line
I'm really confused about this baked goods stuff ? It would make it a lot easier if he could have a cup cake or pizza once and a while, especially at birthdays and school. I still don't understand why the doctor would say none at all when he ate them without a problem before.

Also he has developed hives again and his palms are just peeling off ?? Could he be that he's allergic to the soy ? because thats the only new thing he is eating ? I made an appointment to see the family dr about it next Thursday.

He's only able to use cetaphil lotion and wash
And he has prescribed hydro-cortisone cream which I hate using but I do have to say it helps him
He cant use shampoo or soap or laundry detergent other then the hypo allergenic

Don't hate it, it's better than suffering and getting scar tissue. Having good skin intergrity means that there are fewer possible entry points for allergens to the blood stream.

Never mind the social stigma of skin conditions!

Yes, I never knew about the allergens entering the blood stream through poor skin :(

But it makes me feel better now putting it on him, All I heard before was bad news about it thinning the skin

I did today find dairy free cheese, yogurt , sour cream and cream cheese ... If anyone is looking for this still the health wise store stock it !! and it doesn't contain any milk protein at all and is all gluten free... It is kind of pricey but well worth it !! They also stock a pro biotic drink that is similar to a yogurt drink that he loves!!
If any one has these allergies or kids with these allergies I advise you to check it out! They also sell egg replacement powder, and cookie and cake mixes that are dairy and gluten free!!

Substitution: Instead of canned cream of mushroom soup (contains cream) make your own "cream of mushroom soup" (it works!) as follows:

8 oz. mushrooms, diced
8 oz. (1 c.) chicken broth
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. flour
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 (6 oz.) (3/4 c.) non-dairy creamer
1 tsp. garlic powder
Dash salt & pepper

Have I mentioned that Bird's Custard powder is egg free? Invented by Mr. Bird for his wife who was allergic to eggs.

Cooked puddings work with soymilk but for some reason instant puddings don't.

I never heard of this before, but he sounds like a very nice man.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Bird
Quote:
Alfred Bird's first major invention was egg free custard (1837) . Alfred Bird used cornflour instead of egg to create a custard mix. It was originally intended only for his wife Elizabeth who had both egg and yeast allergies. Only when the custard was accidentally[citation needed] fed to guests did Alfred Bird realise that his invention had a wider use. Soon afterwards Alfred Bird founded 'Alfred Bird and Sons Ltd', which would go on to become the famous Bird's Custard company and brand.
