No "Egg"xageration!


We had a new encounter yesterday evening for dinner... it appears that Jackson is allergic to EGGS. I was on the phone with the doctor who told me to watch out for breathing problems and croop like coughing. Thankfully, it contained itself to a skin rash only. Poor guy had the nasty rash extending from his ear and forehead, all the way down his neck and clavical. He was scratching it like crazy and it HAD to be miserable for him.
We have an appointment to see an allergist this Friday. Because I gave him children's benadryl last night, we have to wait 3 days before he can be seen.

Not a HUGE deal. At this point, Jackson does eat cottage cheese, yogurt and whole milk. So I know that the allergy isn't a lactose allergy. We just need to stay away from egg products and baked goods for a while.

Anyone have a good recipe for a birthday cake without eggs?

Ella had a reaction to pears when she first ate them. The good news is we waited a couple of months before trying them again and she didn't have a reaction at all. The doctor told me to do this, I would have just avoided peaches forever. Maybe he will 'grow out of it' too.

Poor thing. Jacob (my middle baby) was allergic to a lot of food products and the good news is that they can outgrow it. He is 4 1/2 now and allergic to nothing!! Good luck finding an eggless cake. I'll let you know if I see any.

Oh no, poor little Jackson and his rash! :( I guess that's how you figure if what they can and can't have. I haven't come across anything yet.
