Good afternoon, evening or morning! :)

My name is Jessica and my son was diagnosed with several allergies at the age of 6 months. Initially it was Wheat, dairy, peanuts, pork and eggs. Now at the age of 3 the confirmed allergies are Dairy (cows milk) and Legumes to include peanuts. I am looking forward to the community and feedback.

A big thank you to gwentheeditor who helped me get up and running :)

Welcome Jessica!

Do you mean your son is confirmed allergic to beans, lentils, etc. in addition to peanuts?
Can he have soybean products or are they also on the 'no-go' list?

Thank you!

The blood work confirmed the peanuts, cows milk, eggs, wheat and pork when he was little. His levels were low at the time with milk and wheat in the top. However as of 10/2011 (3 years old) his peanuts climbed up a lot he is almost considered a level 3 and I remember how I figured out the legumes thing is that although he never has had peanuts, I had given him lentil beans and that was the worst episode he ever had... He couldn't breath and it was really eye opening. If lentils did that, what would peanuts do! With the last test results, his cows milk does seem to be improving which is really hopeful, but his soy bean is climbing up they are almost the same number. He recently started having projectile vomiting and diarrhea which the first two times we thought was a cold, but the Dr thinks it is allergies (so close together with no cold symptoms). Made me remember the soy bean number going up, so I am worried he will be allergic to soy too before he outgrows the cows milk. I kinda knew that was coming though because they say kids who are allergic to peanuts and legumes tend to be allergic to soy bean too. The cows milk gives him hives around the mouth and jaws and his neck. Being in a room with peanut butter makes his whole face and neck go blotchy with hives. I am rambling sorry!

So in short as of now I've confirmed the below with some sort of reaction (everything else he has outgrown so far):

Cows milk
Peanuts
Lentil beans
sesame seeds
