Apparently I need one of these!?!
I assumed anyone who has witnessed their child go into anaphylaxis in response to a food, MUST be cautious and wise – but for the gung-ho (or crazy) or mis-informed… I don’t know… who may exist out there on this web of information, here’s some info to inform you!
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any experimenting with food that you do! If the Docs say you have an allergy and must not eat a food DO NOT EAT IT! (OR BAKE IT) If the Docs say your child has an allergy and must not eat a food DO NOT FEED IT TO THEM! (OR BAKE IT FOR THEM)
When food is baked its protein changes shape. Some people are able to eat baked egg, but not unbaked egg (like Aars). Others like his Allergy Nurse cannot eat egg in any form. This is why it is vital that you do not try and test baked foods out on your children at home – but rather allow the hospital to do the blood tests and take it from there, based on the results.
Aaron underwent the baked egg, and baked dairy challenge (amongst others) AT HOSPITAL in the ALLERGY CLINIC with TRAINED PROFESSIONALS after his BLOOD RESULTS came back showing it should be possible for him to try baked milk and then baked egg with no adverse reactions.
If your child has an egg allergy or a dairy allergy DO NOT feed them baked egg or baked dairy UNTIL they have undergone BLOOD TESTS and FOOD CHALLENGE DAYS at HOSPITAL, under the SUPERVISION of TRAINED MEDICAL SPECIALISTS.
