LIVING

With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

Negative Corn

Blood results in and Dr says corn is negative. Rice is still a low 1.2 and oats is a 1. With both of those numbers being low and I’ve never seen a reaction we keep him on them. I argued about the corn and the Dr said we can do a test in office to see how he reacts to corn. He doesn’t want me to take him off corn because there isn’t a lot left with out it. I already know this. Dr says feed him corn, I will feed him corn.

So today at lunch I pull out a jar of baby food that is a safe veggie blend for him with corn. It’s all organic too. An hour later, diarrhea. Three hours later his bottom is starting to get inflamed again. I also gave him a popsicle (corn syrup) and his face flared up some more. It hasn’t gone away since this new stuff popped up. So Dr. still don’t think it can’t be corn. *gasp* I guess I have some anger. I told my husband tonight that I knew when Gage was allergic to soy and the Dr doubted me. BOOM big time allergic. I’m pretty sure I’m right this time too.

Not the most flattering picture of him but you can see how’s he broke out. It’s not eczema. It starts out as little dots, like on his forehead. Around his mouth the dots are becoming more dense in certain areas. I was told they are more environmental. He really doesn’t have any environmental allergies. Two came back positive: Russian Thistle and (get this) COCKROACHES! Who in the world is allergic to cockroaches? 

Hopefully the GI Dr can give me some more insight as to what’s going on. I’m very nervous now about rice and oats because who knows what’s going to make his throat swell more.
