If avoidance is not possible, contact your allergist to clarify ...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,

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

I had cereal with almonds in it and almond milk and after a couple of hours my throat began to itch and kind of closed in. Could I be allergic?

I had cereal with almonds in it and almond milk and after a couple of hours my throat began to itch and kind of closed in. Could I be allergic?

YES.: This is concerning. Anytime the airway is compromised, you could be in trouble - and allergic symptoms may worsen with repeated exposures to an allergen. I would recommend that you discuss this with your doctor. S/he may recommend allergy testing to identify what - if anything - you are allergic to. In the meantime, do not re-expose yourself to almonds or other nuts from trees. Be careful. ...Read more
