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
Maybe: Will birch immunotherapy help with oral allergy syndrome? I agree with Dr. Al Hegab that the benefits are not fully understood at this point in time and immunotherapy solely for the purpose of treating OAS is not recommended. However, if you also have allergic rhinitis and/or allergic asthma symptoms, immunotherapy could improve these symptoms, and maybe symptoms of OAS. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
