Q.

ALLEGIES

Hi there,

My son is 4 months old and had blood tests done to check for allegies ect which came back all clear. Lately he scratches his eyes alot &  I dont know why. My ped advised me to start him on rice cereal &  he is also on the organic baby foods since Sunday.

Please advise what you think the problem could be?

Thanks,
Charlene

It does appear that your baby has an eye allergy problem. The best way to test for allergies in babies of his age is by skin tests. You should take him to be seen by a paediatric allergist as your baby seems to have a significant problem with his eyes.
