With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

Poor itchy Gage

This morning Gage woke up and had a few more dots. By noon he was itching like crazy and I had spoken to the on call allergist. Keep Benadryl and allergy meds in him. He will be tired but it should keep him comfortable. So we did that along with limiting his diet down to a few single foods. He had some corn at snack and a hive popped up beside his mouth. OH CRAP! Not corn. By evening he was feeling much better. Not itching as much. He didn’t get anymore hives. We’ll see what tomorrow brings. Monday he will go to the allergist and we’ll get this figured out!

My mommy instinct says it’s either the prevacid he just started taking, chocolate he had a lot of this week, corn, rice or the grass. I’m really praying its chocolate and not something major like the corn or rice!

Pox or Hives

Over the past few days Gage has developed some dots on his head, face, behind his ears, under his chin… At first I thought they were hives. They looked like hives. Thing is though they don’t go away. This is about day 4 that I’ve noticed them. I called his allergist yesterday and they said “keep an eye on him (duh) and give him Benadryl” So that’s what I’m doing. Then last night I noticed the two behind his ears looked like they had fluid in them and thought oh no chicken pox! He had the shot so I didn’t know how he would still get it. This morning he only had one more, on the top of his head and still has the others. No more fluid in the ones behind his ears though. I’ve never had it happen where the hives stick around for a while. What is going on!

To be continued………
