FAQ: How Did You Learn About Joseph’s Allergies?
I am often surprised by the question of how we learned about Joseph’s allergies. The answer just seems so simple. We gave him milk and nuts and he immediately blew up in hives. Gluten took a bit more digging through an elimination diet, but we had that figured out before he was five months old.
Now I’m realizing how blessed I was to have it that clear. I have a couple of friends who are trying to understand why their children are reacting. One has had a blood test and is now trying to confirm the findings through an elimination diet. Another’s baby is breaking out in hives and she doesn’t know the trigger, if it is food or environmental.
