That's one smart kid! No way was she going to eat something that she 'knew' was dangerous. What our kids must think of us... :freak

Congratulations on losing an allergy! I hope you enjoy your new bigger world! :happydance

My daughter also refused to eat baked goods with eggs in them last year even when we had the okay from the doctor. After much encouragement, she ate small parts of cupcakes but it was such a battle that I left the whole issue for a while. This spring I decided to sneak in some eggs into her diet knowing that it was safe and that anxiety was holding her back. I really didn't want to deceive her but I knew that this step was important to help her build tolerance.

Anyways I started with one small egg in a double batch of muffins and in a 9x12 cake. She has been fine with both. I have moved up to using large eggs now in the same baked items.

I am wondering what I should try next? Should I use 2 eggs in the muffins and cake or try cookies with one egg? The cookies only bake a short time though. Any advice from past experience would be appreciated!

Congrats on passing baked milk and egg. My 16 year old has gone for the baked egg challenge last 2 years and wasn't able to continue past the skin test. She did make it past peanut and hazelnut food challenge. Down from 10 allergies now to just the egg. Hoping next year brings us past the egg allergy.

Just got notified of this reply drummond and I was so surprised - I haven't been on here in years!

Since I'm the one who started this thread so many years ago, I thought I'd better update - shortly after my last post ds developed symptoms of EoE, quickly confirmed by scope. Baked milk was stopped, and we felt like we had taken 1 step forward and 2 steps back. :( Fast forward to now and he still has EoE (needs meds for it), has had to go off of beef now as well (exercise-induced anaphylaxis) and his milk RAST remains so high that my now-16 yo has pretty much given up hope. He hasn't had any reactions in quite a while though, so he is good at protecting himself.

Wondering if the baked milk brought all this on, or maybe it just "uncovered" it. It was heart-wrenching and so disappointing to have to give it up, knowing it was a possible path to tolerance. He has broken down a few times about it, but is generally the same kid he always was - happy, active, lots of friends.

Oh no - sorry to hear it. The EoE stuff is baffling. In most cases, the allergists seem to think it was there from the start, but it is hard to figure out and case by case.

Lots of best wishes for your son.

Momtobunches, I just wanted to say that I'm sorry to hear of your son's EoE. It's a tough blow after such an encouraging time. I just wanted to wish you the best and to know that we're thinking of you. We're all hoping for the best health for those dealing with food allergies and other food related issues. There sure are some very resilient people out there, and your son sounds like one of them!
...Julie
