During the beginning of January my daughter had a very bad allergic reaction, which caused both of her eyelids to swell shut. We took her to the ER, and she was given some medicine. A few days later her eyes went back to normal; however, neither my wife nor myself could figure out why she had a reaction. About 2 weeks later we took my daughter to have a blood test. The results came back and indicated she is allergic to peanuts, strawberries, chocolate, eggs, and milk. I had a hard time accepting this for two reasons. For one my daughter eats these types of foods regularly with no reaction. Also there is no family history of allergies to these foods.......or so I thought. Last night my mother called me and said that my niece (my brother's daughter) also had an allergy test. According to her test, my niece is allergic to milk, peanuts, strawberries, and soy!! This is crazy, the poor girl can't have milk or soy? What is she suppose to eat? What is my daughter suppose to eat for that matter? Besides my daughter & my niece....I don't know anyone else in the family with these types of allergies. I wonder are all allergies genetic or are some environmental? There are too many food allergy today!!!
