ibcdbwc Posted April 11, 2014 Report Share Posted April 11, 2014 This seems silly to ask but it really is driving me nuts. DS13 has always been what I thought was an allergy kid, but he always tested negative. Fast forward to age 12 and he finally tests positive for strong allergy to dustmites AND his tissue transglutaminase IgA was quite high (92.4 percent specific marker for Celiac). So we are gluten free and dairy free, though my impulsive/compulsive child still "cheats" at school. It's been about 10 days since we started trying this approach. Have talked before about severe facial flushing... am sure it must be allergic responses... but it has been somewhat better. He also started 1/2 Claritin. Tonight, he had baked sweet potato, baked chicken and salad. All gluten free, all dairy free -- homeade dressing et cetera. Water to drink. No meds. Within about 20 minutes, he had bright red ears. And some hyperactivity. It's not temperature related -- he's eaten similar hot foods and not had the reaction. He's also not anxious. What am i missing?
