A list

  • Peanuts
  • Cashews
  • Hazlenuts
  • Walnuts
  • Soy
The list of my son's allergens. The allergens that are most likely causing the asthma and the eczema. The nuts, I already had an idea, but the soy? Where the hell did that come from? There is soy in like EVERYTHING! The allergist said that it was a mild allergy, a 1 on a scale of 1-6, but it's probably why the eczema and asthma are chronic...so cutting out the soy will probably make it better...

Poor guy.

It's strange to see so many kids allergic these days.

SOY??

How on earth are you supposed to cut that out? I mean like you said it's in nearly everything.
No offense but I wouldn't want to be you going up and down the grocery store isles.

Good luck and I hope you find a compromise that helps with both the illnesses your Little Man faces.
