Do you think you could see a nutritionist. I have one that see my diabetic celiac daughter and she is real helpful. I an sure someone on her can give you ideas.

At my son's next appointment on the 13th we will be meeting with a nutritionist. They gave use 3 cans of EleCare Jr which we are using as his new "milk."

We deal/have dealt with all the same allergies except oregano.

The first thing I ask is have you SEEN reactions to these foods or are you going only by the allergy testing? Because the testing is 50% inaccurate. The TRUE test is food challenges. If your child has been eating these things with no reaction, you should really talk to your allergist (A board certified pediatric allergist) about the likelihood that they are false positives. Also, at 2 there is a great chance that he'll outgrow at least some of these before school age hits.

Of your list, corn and oregano would be the hardest and would require lots of calls because they are not Top 8 so don't have to be declared. "Flavorings" could have oregano in them as well. I think before I would remove that from his diet, if haven't seen a reaction I would not pull it till talking to the Dr. There is no need to take stuff out if you haven't seen a reaction and it's bad advice to do so.

I have seen reactions to eggs, peanuts, oats. After his first peanut reaction we pretty much avoided nuts. I was keeping a food diary at one point and suspected corn but he seemed fine after having Ian's Fish Sticks & Chicken Nuggets. So Im not sure if corn is really a problem. Im not sure milk is really a problem. I was giving him yoghurt/cheese sticks when we tryed our gluten-free trial and he seemed better. Soy could have been a hidden problem I didn't consider.

So I will continue eliminating gluten, egg, nuts and soy and see what happens?

As soon as I put him back on gluten-free his skin cleared of all red rashy skin within 3 days.

Thanks for all the advice!! :D *hugs*

Why do you think brown rice syrup would be made from barley?

I found a website that said brown rice syrup was made from barley!

And I think I was so tired and overwhelmed last night I was thinking of Canola Oil as from Corn. LOL

Hi Mona--welcome to the board! :)

Dove will clearly list any gluten, so you're ok there. In addition to gluten-free products, I also choose products without SLS or other harsh detergents whenever possible. I don't have DH, but I do get itching and eczema.

Some good products to look for--ShiKai Shampoo and Conditioner, Kiss My Face Olive Oil Bar Soap, Jason Showersilk Liquid shower soap--those are free of SLS.

Other brands that are gluten-free--Softsoap, Purex Free and Clear (and regular) laundry detergent, All Free and Clear (and regular) laundry detergent.

Thanks for this! I am making sure everything is gluten-free in the house because my poor 2 yr old just got the celiac confirmation with dh! Im getting some free & clear tonight. ;)
