Dairy and wheat allergy in my 4 year old my son has been diagnosed with asthma and allergies to dairy and wheat - we cut out everything that contains we are now on a gluten and dairy free diet - however when we went to the specialist he said the allergies

Physicians: Physicians usually rely on science and evidence to advise parents. It's interesting to speculate on causes but speculation is not evidence in the scientific meaning. Dairy and wheat allergies are diagnosed by specific tests and these allergies can be related to asthma and eczema.
