My baby's body rash is getting worse. Concerned it might be an allergic reaction to almond milk. What should I do?

My baby's body rash is getting worse. Concerned it might be an allergic reaction to almond milk. What should I do?

Don't worry: First don't stress out. Babies get rashes all the time for various very common reasons. Second, why are you giving almond milk? You can stop it if you'd like. This may provide data as to whether or not it is involved. Third, take photos of the rash progression and see the pediatrician because only eyes-on can really determine the type of rash. Could be allergy; I'd sooner blame a virus or eczema. ...Read more

Can my 2 year old be allergic to almond milk but not to almonds? He eats them daily no reaction, tried almond milk and vomited 3 times right after,

Can my 2 year old be allergic to almond milk but not to almonds? He eats them daily no reaction, tried almond milk and vomited 3 times right after,

Unlikely: If your 2 year old had a true IgE-mediated allergic reactions to almond this allergy would manifest with both almonds and with almond milk. Given your concern and consistency of reaction I would have your child avoid almonds until seen by an Allergist for skin or blood testing to confirm/deny allergy. An Allergist will be able to get to the bottom of this. ...Read more

Can you tell me if my boyfriend (allergic to peanuts) drank almond milk without having a reaction, can he eat powdered almond?

Almond is different: it's a tree nut, different from peanuts, no cross reactivity, but he can be allergic to both, if he drank almond milk and was exposed to almond before with no reaction, then he would have no problem eating powdered almond, just be cautious, try a small amount first, you can try it in a doctor's office/waiting room, if any problem, so you are in the very place you want to be in, take care ...Read more

What happens if my boyfriend (allergic to peanuts) drank almond milk without having a reaction, can he eat powdered almond?

Probably: Peanut and almond are not cross reactive. If there is no history of almond allergy in the first place, then drinking almond milk confirms no allergy. That said you have to make sure that the almond powder is not processed in a factory which also makes peanut products. ...Read more

How come my son can eat yogurt and cheese with no problem but has allergic reaction to a full glass of milk?

How come my son can eat yogurt and cheese with no problem but has allergic reaction to a full glass of milk?

Allergy to milk: Are you sure it is a allergic reation? If the symptoms are intestinal pain and diarrhea then he may have lactose intolerance due to milk sugar lactose not being digested. Yogurt has less lactose than milk and that is why it may be eaten with problem. If it is allergy, then a whole glass of milk carries a lot more allergic portortion compared to yogurt. ...Read more
