I wouldn't: Pepto has salycilates which we don't give tom kids under 16 because of an association with liver failure/death (Reye syndrome).Wet burps that do not result in problems with hydration often decrease with age as the reflux improves. If the kid is growing well. I would leave it alone. ...Read more

Does a prolonged elimination diet (eg AIP) cause food allergies or anaphylaxis to foods that you eliminated?

Does a prolonged elimination diet (eg AIP) cause food allergies or anaphylaxis to foods that you eliminated?

Not usually: If you eliminated a food you are allergic to even for a long time, the reaction is unpredictable on reintroduction but it is unlikely that this action alone eliminates the food allergy. However some food allergies do tend to fade away (milk, egg etc0 with time-whether this is from having avoided it for a long time or not is unclear. ...Read more

Do food allergies last a lifetime, or do they eventually go away?

Go away in kids: You are 37 years old. Although I have seen fish allergy resolve after 20 years or so, for most adults food allergies do not go away. In children & infants most dairy, egg, wheat, soy & corn allergy resolves in a few years. For example, for dairy we see at least 80% resolution in 10-15 years. Even peanut & tree nut allergy resolves spontaneously in 20-25% of kids. ...Read more

How long after I've taken prednisone (for 2 nights) should I wait before I get food allergy testing? Don't want results to be affected. Thanks!

Should be Fine: 2 dose of oral prednisone shouldn't affect skin testing results. Prior to your appointment make sure you are not on any antihistamine medications as these can interfere with the histamine response required for skin testing. Get off non-sedating antihistamines for around 3-5 days prior, sedating antihistamines 1-2 days prior. ...Read more

Yes and No: If one continues to eat food that she is allergic to, then symptoms will continue and may become more severe. Example are eczema with worsening rash, eosinophilic esophagitis with food getting stuck or failure to thrive if chronic diarrhea continues. Food allergy is not a sign of an underlying disorder.

Multiple food allergies. Last tested 2 years ago. Could I lose some food and allergies & gain new ones? 36f. Test again?

See an Allergist/Imm: First, food allergy testing can be falsely positive, so without knowing more of your history, it's hard to know if some of the tests were positive without a true allergy to that food. It can certainly happen that one may "outgrow" an allergy to one food and develop an allergy to a new food, but it is not frequent. If you haven't already done so, you should see an allergist/immunologist. ...Read more
