My youngest went to the allergist this week and she was very little help at all....she did the skin test for what we suspected would be a milk allergy and NOTHING came up.Even though when he has milk or any direct milk product(cheese, yogurt...) he gets a rash and massive diaherria(sp?). She said it is milk protein intolerance AND lactose intolerance and I needed to see the GI Dr. since his stomach was his main reaction and his skin test showed nothing. She did draw blood and said it's possible for it to show in that test but it would be unlikely. Any suggestions, he's only 3 and it sure is hard to find stuff for him to eat. There are not many soy based products in my area.....

There is a Whole Foods store on the north side of town, and I know they will have a variety of soy and rice products for you to try. If the dairy bothers him so badly, you should definitely avoid it. Regardless of what your allergist said. I really like Silk soymilk if he can tolerate soy. And the So delicious coconut milk yogurt is fantastic. Even if you only go to "finish" your shopping for the items you can't get near you, it will be worth it. Also, Trader Joe's is closer to you than me, and it has a lot of choices too, and will be less expensive. Good Luck!
