If you *don’t* have an allergic child, or an allergy yourself, you may not know why allergies can be life threatening, or why it is not being “over-protective” to ensure your child has their epi pen with them at all times. This post, from the brilliant medic The Allergist Mom not only explains it in […](image)

For many parents, a suspected but undiagnosed food allergy can be a source of huge stress and uncertainty. We had tried elimination of certain foods to try and help small boy’s eczema, but it wasn’t until the terrifying reaction to a peanut that we even considered food allergies. Amongst other things, small boy is allergic […](image)

Judging day is getting closer, my train ticket is booked and my tastebuds are at the ready. I am sure all the entrants in all the categories will be fantastic, but I […](image)

If you have allergies, you will know that it is difficult to eat out. However, when you have spoken to the eatery in question and have been assured that your allergies can be catered for, to be told 15 minutes before your booking that actually, they can’t is a bit off. But that is exactly […](image)

Allergy Trifle!samthewlistrifle

Mon, 12 Dec 2011 23:27:52 +0000

It’s Christmas and allergy-sufferers like Christmas too. This year I decided to make small boy a trifle. Jelly and raspberries are not  a problem, but trifle sponges are. However, I discovered we could use the bun part of an iced bun, which is kind of a sweet bread, and that worked fine. If you are […](image)

I know this isn’t strictly allergy related, but as many people with allergies also have eczema, hopefully this post will be of use. We have tried EVERY cream for eczema on the market, and some that aren’t. Doublebase, Diprobase, E45, Hydrocortisone cream, Eumovate, you name it. The best success we had was with a new […](image)

Small boy has multiple food allergies and eczema, but thankfully does not seem to have any contact allergies- apart from one. Washing powder. We only discovered this fact when our car broke down and we were unable to get to the supermarket to buy our normal non-bio. We did, however, have some allergy friendly washing […](image)

I am always looking for new products for small boy, particularly things that can be carried around for picnics, birthday parties (as he always has to bring his own food) or just for little snacks. So when Dietary Specials asked me to try some of their new breadsticks, I was delighted, as I am a […](image)

Please Miss, I can’t help my son’s allergies…samthewlisschool

Last week I went to see small boy’s headteacher. Not because he was in trouble, but because I was. Stricly speaking I had done nothing wrong, but I was cross. You see, I had just received a letter from school advising me that small boy’s attendance at school was unsatisfactory, at 91.4% was below the […](image)
