I realize your post is from 2012 but in reading the comments trying to find a solution for my daughter's situation, I had to write in the event you were still having issues. Please google PANDAS in regards to your daughter's violent behavior after having Strep throat. There is a direct link. It has been in the news a lot recently. https://www.webmd.com/children...-scary-kids-disorder

Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

MulanMommy ·
Jennifer: AGREED!!! DS was tested low score on WHEAT & SOY both skin test and blood test, we never took it seriously only avoided wheat by itself (wheat bread) and soy by itself (tofu, soybean..etc) but since birth he had eczema and stuffy nose throughout the year. We thought it's more related to seasonal/weather, but his skin problem and congestion issue lasted through summer-winter, hot OR cold seasons; we also thought it's environmental (dust mite) so we changed to special pillows/...

Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

Jennifer Roberge ·
Hi MulanMommy - It's incredible what food can do to the body - good or bad. In our son's case, he now has severe reactions, borderline anaphylaxis, with dairy, soy, gluten, corn, and tree nuts. He can not even have one bite - or a trace. Still also triggers eczema. He used to be very sensitive to tomatoes, red pepper, and cantelope, but now that his eczema is under control, he can eat these things every few days, but as you said, never more than two days in a row. The same with coconut. So...

Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

Any thoughts or direction on behavioral issues due to food? My now 6 year old daughter never had any stomach issues, eczema, or anything else, but she became absolutely uncontrollable (threatening to kill me, punching, kicking)after a strep infection back in February. I figured something had to have happened and had the doctor do all the gluten related bloodwork since it was just not her and her oldest brother is GFCF. Sure enough, it came back positive. The allergist put her on an...

Re: 3 Tricks to Managing Food Allergies at Halloween

sahnya ·
Since so many Halloween candies contain allergens for my children we've started a new family tradition for the holiday. Rather than handing out any candy or treats to the 200 or so kids who come to our neighborhood we leave our house and have a nice night out. Our kids can choose a restaurant then we go to a movie. I buy and/or make them some quality non-allergenic treats that they can enjoy and add some to their lunches for the following week. They love it. I love that I can go through the...

Re: The AllergyEats 2014 List of Most Allergy-Friendly Restaurant Chains

Mahbahlih ·
Hi kally, My son has a very severe milk allergy and we eat at Chipotle 1-2 times per week. I can totally understand your apprehension. Here are some tips: One person handles your food. They will change their gloves first - sometimes you have to remind them but it's coorporate policy AFAIK. I always ask them to hold my son's tray - do not slide it on the counter. We only get rice, beans, and meat from the bar. Any salsa, lettuce or guac comes from the fridge under the bar or the back.
