Eczema, anaphylaxis: Food allergies in children can be associated with eczema, or anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction that can manifest as hives, throat swelling or trouble breathing.

Agree, but eczema and anaphylaxis usually occur independently of each other.

Many: They can range from a rash vomiting to an overwhelming shock and respiratory distress. Another words lowering of the blood pressure to a critical level and the inability to breathe normally. This is should be treated as an emergency.

Can you still be lactose intolerant even though the IgE allergy test claims no allergy?

Yes: Lactose intolerance is due to the lack of lactase in the GI tract. This is te enzyme tht digests lactose. Without it a person gets gas, cramping and diarrhea despite not having any allergy. Bacteria in the colon cause the gas and the sugar(lactose) acts as a laxative.

Must my child eat a balanced diet every day?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. James Ferguson
Pediatrics 46 years experience
Good luck trying: The balanced diet is an adult idea, & a good one to practice for your lifetime.However it is a bit impractical when you deal with kids. Breast milk is balanced, but get past weaning & you must deal with a kid with his/her own ideas about eating. I like to look on kids from the vantage point of a balanced week rather than meal or day. Before school age their brain directs their cravings & does ok.
