Q.

Allergies

Hi, Doctor....If my son( 3yr), has tested positive to food(milk, soya, citris, peanuts, ect...) to what extend do I need to avoid him of taking it? He does take his meds every day...Will it cause terrible harm if he eats something once in a while? The reason I asks this, is because his grandparents sometimes gives him stuff when I'm not around (even after I explained to them that he is allergic), and at parties, he cries alot if he can't have what the other kids have....If I may ask a second question? Will he outgrow these allergies?
Thanx, I'm feeling very frustrated and overwhelmed...

He must definitely not have any nuts and probably no milk at this stage although he should outgrow the milk allergy by 4 or 5 years. Most children do not outgrow nut allergies. He should not have citrus either as this usually aggravates eczema rashes. He will probably grow out of the soya allergy quite soon.
