Spryte Posted October 1, 2012 Share Posted October 1, 2012 I want to cry. DS has food allergies - lots of them. We deal with so many life-threatening allergies - it's a dance every day in the kitchen, and a big production if we go to one of the few restaurants that are safe for him. I call *every* company that makes processed foods or ingredients, but I make most of his foods from scratch. He also has a wheat allergy - a true allergy, not an intolerance to gluten or Celiac - though it manifests as asthma and eczema not anaphylaxis. (Yet, according to allergist.) On top of that, he has gobs of pollen allergies and his OAS is out of this world. Raw foods - he can only manage sliced apples, tomatoes, and lettuces. Until today, grapes were fine. Grapes are now causing throat burning and itching, into his ears. No feeling of throat closing. Aaaarrrrrggghhhhhh! When does this stop? I don't want to give him Benadryl tonight as he's scheduled for a food challenge in the doc's office on Tues am. If I give Benadryl it will take another 3 months to reschedule (he has to be Benadryl free for a week prior to the test). Just needed to share this with someone...
