Maybe someone knows what is going on with this becasue I am just at a loss:
DD had her baked egg challenge on Wednesday. She is 29 months old. After the first bite or two she started grabbing her tounge, telling me she had bug bites and that it was spicy. I immediately ran out to get the nurse, we could see nothing going on anywhere. She kept asking for more and they told me if she really was having a bad reaction that bothered her she would not want more. A little bit later she was talking, a bit of drool rolled down her chin. One, I mean one, hive popped up where the drool hit. It was gone within 30 minutes. We kept going and she was fine. They said she was clear for baked goods.
Thursday morning she asked for one of the muffins for breakfast. Within the first two bites she was grabbing her tounge and telling me it was spicy. My husband tasted a muffin and asked if it had nutmeg or something in it because it did have a weird taste. Okay, I thought, maybe it's just the muffin taste. I brought her home a regular chocolate chip cookie from a bakery that afternoon. Two bites, then holding her tounge and saying it's spicy. I took it away and then there was a small meltdown becasuse she wanted more.
What the heck is going on? Her reaction when she was first diagnosed at 9 months was hives on her face, back and chest. Now, nothing but her shoving her hand in her mouth. I am waiting on a call back from the allergist office, but in the meantime was wondering if this has happened to anyone else? Is her body just not used to the egg? Do we keep trying small amounts to keep building her tolerance? I mean she was 100% okay after the challenge. No gastro issues, nothing. I am so confused...
