yikes! 2 horrible allergic reactions in ONE Week! first one kiddo breaks out in MASSIVE huge hives. i had no idea what they even were. they were on his face, his arms, his chest, his back!????? and we had no idea what he reacted to! i think it was maybe some soap he got into. But then i was told you can't get hives from something external?? dont know. so if that is the case was it something he ate? I have no idea! ACK! well we got that one under control. Benadryl and extra virgin coconut oil and a shower saved the day. Then the next day i ended up with HUGE allergic reaction to the Passover gluten free matzah!!! WOW! i was itching head to toe. Not one spot on my body did not itch. My reactions to foods are getting worse with time and leaves me wondering what the heck am i a supposed to do with that???? i have never itched that bad EVER! i just wanted to itch my skin right off my body. Then my nose was running and i was sneezing and had a huge stuffy head and then bloat and itchy bloated burning face. feeling lethargic. oh oh oh. Those few bites yes BITES of matzah were so not worth it. even now i am still itching some but not near as bad as i was. Anyone have any thoughts on that? Has any one ever had their allergic reactions get worse over time even though they are doing their best to avoid the foods they are not supposed to have. All i can seriously say is YIKES! and what the heck???? so my daughter is kind of getting better she went from colitis to leaky gut. So some improvement. I gained sole medical decision making for the children and her father was told he HAD To obey drs orders. So hopefully this will be the start of her getting better and recovery. So some craziness the last week. I hope to get into my food preparation again here! but thought i shoudl post SOMETHING since it has been so long! if anyone has thoughts on allergic reactions and why this would happen i would love to hear it.
