After eating scrambled eggs for the first time my 9 month old started gagging and got very fussy and congested. Could this be an allergic reaction?

After eating scrambled eggs for the first time my 9 month old started gagging and got very fussy and congested. Could this be an allergic reaction?

Yes: I encourage parents to avoid eggs until after a year of age. If your kid has any negative reaction to a new food you should avoid it for at least a month or more depending on the degree of response. Hives or breathing problems should increase avoidance until you have discussed the issue with your doc, and possibly had allergy tests run. Some food reactions can increase intensity each time. ...Read more

My daughter is able to get her flu shot but I'm scared she will have an allergic reaction to the chicken eggs used. Any suggestions?

What type of: Reaction did she have in the past? If there has been any reaction that can be attributed, then the flu shot is not for her. If she has had a reaction, and she got the flu shot, I would have Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and/or Atarax ready with perhaps some Epi pen just in case. Egg allergies can be nasty and unpredictable. ...Read more

Was under sedation with propofol for IVF egg retrieval. Was given antibiotic cefuroxime and novalgin for pain. Started to cough. They said it was like an asthma attack. Antibiotic allergic reaction?

Was under sedation with propofol for IVF egg retrieval. Was given antibiotic cefuroxime and novalgin for pain. Started to cough. They said it was like an asthma attack. Antibiotic allergic reaction?

Novalgin (Metamizole): Metamizole was banned in usa in 1977 due to risk of agranulocytosis and you are in california. It may be reaction to anesthesia or novalgin wherever you were given this drug (metamizole)
it is unlikely a reaction to antibiotics.
If it ever happens again check with your doctor. Do not take novalgin while you are pregnant. ...Read more

What are common MMR reactions? My daughters allergist will administer it due to egg allergies. What can I expect?

Usually nothing: Every day, thousands get an MMR vaccination, and nothing happens except in a few cases. There sometimes is irritation, itching, or soreness at the shot site. A few kids get a mild fever a few days later, and even fewer got some red-spots rash. People with mild rashes to eating eggs are not expected to get an allergic reaction, but getting the shot at the allergist's office is ok for extra safety. ...Read more

Hi, is there a medicine for allergies in eating chicken and eggs? I get skin rashes which are very itchy everytime I eat. Thank you.

Avoidance.: The way to avoid allergic reactions is to avoid eating chicken and eggs. An antihistamine such as Allegra or Claritin (loratadine) might blunt the reaction somewhat, if you take it before eating the offending food, but it won't work as well as not eating the food in the first place. ...Read more

I am allergic to seafood but I can eat tunafish and breaded shrimp can I eat lobster and crab without having an allergic reaction?

I am allergic to seafood but I can eat tunafish and breaded shrimp can I eat lobster and crab without having an allergic reaction?

Difficult to answer: Seafood includes shellfish and fish. Shellfish includes mollusks and crustaceans. You describe being able to eat a sea dwelling fish (tuna) and a crustacean (shrimp). Therefore you are not allergic to seafood. Lobsters and crabs are crustaceans and share the same allergy inducing protein tropomyosin. It does not appear you are allergic to that or you would have had trouble with shrimp. ...Read more

8mo is preferring solids. Not just jarred food but pieces to chew. Can I give him soft scrambled eggs? I read conflicting reviews on allergies/safety.

Yes: It is no longer that controversial. Recent studies showed that introducing table food later than the 1st 6 months of life may actually increase the risk of developing food allergies. It appears that it is better to get the baby on regular food (if tolerated) as early as 4 months of age. ...Read more

Allergies to pineapple, eggs & wine--what is the common denominator?

Allergies to pineapple, eggs & wine--what is the common denominator?

Your immune system: You have a tendency to develop allergies to foreign proteins in your diet. I am interested in your wine allergy. Reactions to wine are either pharmacologic - the alcohol & other ingredients care drugs that cause nasal congestion or the sulfiting agents in the wine trigger asthma. Wine is often clarified by dropping a raw egg through it. If you are very allergic to egg this could be a denominator. ...Read more

My 1 year old son was diagnosed with allergy to eggs and nuts via blood test. Neither parents have such allergies. Can he grow out of those allergies?

He may not have them: Blood tests measure ige antibodies to a specific antigen (eg. Peanuts). However, they may or may not correlate clinically with allergies. It would be wise to consult with a board certified allergist before assuming your son is allergies. If he is, he is more likely to outgrow allergies to eggs after a few years then outgrow allergies to peanuts which he may have for a lifetime. ...Read more

How does one recuperate 8 years after being diagnosed with giardia & allergies to wheat, diary, soy, eggs, beef, garlic, citrus & nuts. Malabsorption is a problem. Many md's & nd's have been consulted with no results. Help!?

Malabsorption: Complex case-you have clearly had many good minds approach these issues with you. I'm so sorry, but this forum is not designed to tackle problems as complex as you are describing. What to even tell you to seek? Perhaps a good allergist who really works closely with a GI doc and has a nutritionist on staff...You will need to focus on foods that you are able to eat and try to work from there. ...Read more
