Calling the doctor...

Guess I'll be calling the doctor Monday. The allergist to be exact. Seems Jackson's body does NOT want him to have dairy.

The first time I gave him dairy, it was mac and cheese. He broke out in a rash and had welts on his arms. He hasn't had anything since. Well he's a year old now, which means no more formula on his WIC. We still have formula left (his formula is not milk based), and he eats regular food. So today I give him 2 ounces of regular milk. He seemed fine. The only reddish areas were where he has eczema. SO I thought nothing of it. Tonight I give him 4 ounces of milk. Now he has a rash on his face. So I wake him enough to give him some Benadryl.

That's why I'll be calling the allergist. He already sees this doctor for asthma. Now I want to know what he's allergic to because I'm afraid to give him anything new.

None of my older three had allergies, so this is all new to me. Wish me luck! I think I'll need it. LOL

I hope it's something really mild and easy to deal with, rather than having to read every damn label on every damn package for the rest of your life.
