My baby has mucusy runny like poop, she is one month old. Could this mean a milk/soy reaction?

My baby has mucusy runny like poop, she is one month old. Could this mean a milk/soy reaction?

Yes: Mucous in stools suggests irritation of the lining of the intestines. One reason for this a tthis age would be allergy. The most likely culprits, if allergy, would be milk and/or egg but soy is possible as well. If breast feeding try a 2 week period off milk products and see what happens, if not better try this with egg, finally soy. If better probably was an allergy and should be outgrown later. ...Read more

What to do if I found out I am allergic to all dairy products goats milk soy gluten eggs corn and all white fish plus I'm vegan, what can I eat?

Trust your gut ;): Call me a skeptic. I worry you've been done a disservice. By how you phrased the question, I have a hunch someone blasted you w/ random blood tests. Then assumed all positives were true. Naive. It's easy to test; takes experience/wisdom to interpret, based on evidenced-based medicine. See a good allergist (many in chicagoland) to learn which of these values represent a true positive. ...Read more

8 wk old milk/soy protein allergy -on neocate, &allergic to rice. Showed similar reaction to nutra that contained rice/corn starch-allergic to starch?

Milk Allergy: Allergies are due to a reaction to protein. Corn is a starch or carbohydrate. If you infant reacted to nutra, it would not be from reacting to the starch. I assume the reaction was either eczema or bloody stools, not gas or a change in stools. If the reaction was not eczema or bloody stools, your baby may be intolerant and not allergic. ...Read more

Allergy test I took to nuts, fish, milk, soy, was negative. This means, there is no reason for the tongue to swell, and kill me? I have health anxiety

Allergy tests: The tests you had done were food allergens. Although it is encouraging that they are negative, there are other things you could be allergic to, such as aeroallergens: pollens, grasses, trees, weeds and even animals. Any kind of a reaction to allergen could cause tongue swelling. There are other causes of tongue swelling, but allergies & trauma are most common. Not common to kill, though. ...Read more

Is it okay to switch from whole milk to soy milk? My son has been having constipation for a while now and iam very worried. Help

Avoid soy: Soy "milk" is highly processed and is not good to consume - by anybody. You didn't mention how old your son is. If he is an infant he needs a properly balanced substitute if you can't breast feed him. If older he may not even need milk. You may want to consider goat milk if cow dairy is giving him problems. Remember that children need fat for brain development. Stay away from low fat foods. ...Read more

I'm worried because my son is allergic to milk, eggs, soy, tree nuts and sesame, I was wondering what variety of food I can give, what do you suggest?

Too complex 4 site: This is an issue that should be worked out by you with the allergist and the kids pcp. You didn't mention wheat but the pattern suggests some gut issues that could be gluten sensitivity. If so, a restrictive diet for 6-8 weeks may improve the gut enough that some of the foods could be added back in rotation. ...Read more

My grandson is 5months old. He had a milk and soy intOlerance. He was put on neocate. Dr and allergist claim he can't react. He is breaking out in a r?

No rash from Neocate: You mention food intolerance, but it is most probably allergy. You don't describe the rashes. Are they hives, or ongoing eczema (atopic dermatitis, AD)? Neocate is unlikely to cause rashes. Nexium (esomeprazole) definitely may cause rashes. Also, if your grandson has AD, he may break out even if not fed an allergenic food. Have another conversation with his allergist. Also, www. Aaaai. Org, www. Nationaljewish. Org. ...Read more

Can phytoestrogens cause changes in menstrual cycles? I swapped milk for soy milk for a month & had spotting. It stopped when I stopped drinking soy.
