I'm sorry to hear of your GD's allergies, but I'm so glad you have an answer bcz at this younger age sometimes the tests are not 100% accurate due to limited exposure to the allergin .. now that you know we are here to help you and anytime you have a ? let us know!

"The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network"  has lots of information, most of it aimed towards kids.  I just checked (it's the dot org site) and they have cookbooks as well as recipes.

BTW...I'm allergic to soy and have problems both with food and topical.  Soy is in lots of shampoos (not sure about baby shampoos), lotions, soaps, ink etc.  I can always tell when I'm using something I shouldn't because it makes me itch like crazy...then I get a rash.  Most people are OK with lethicin (in chocolate, ice cream) and oil (wesson is soybean oil) but it gives me mouth sores.

Good luck, I know how frustrated I feel as an adult.  Lots of people will share with you.

Thank You so much for your info.  It's been crazy, I don't know if I told you but we found out on her 1st Birthday. She's now 15 months and she something else. But she has a bad temper, gets moody.  I've read somewhere sometimes this goes with food allergies for babies, is this true?  This weekend something happen when she was outside and a friend had horse over and we're wondering if it was the horse cuz she did touch it.    What age can they do more scratch test on her?  We're going to take her Tampa to see a Dr. It's just so frustrated and we do think lot of hers might be topical. Again thank you!
