I am hoping for a little more insight into a possible upcoming food trial...at approx 8 months old, our son was diagnosed with FPIES, egg being his only trigger food. We have easily removed egg from his diet and he's been happy and thriving. The last exposure was 02/2016, we were at a friend's house and a plate of brownies was put in front of him and he naturally took one like every other kiddo at the table. A bite or two occurred before I lunged across the room. As you know, two hours later he was vomiting and then a day or two of loose stools. Well, our allergist isn't well-versed on FPIES and (somewhat arbitrarily it seems) gave us the magic age of three as to when he would outgrow this.
So here we are, a month away from 3. Depending on the day, I go back and forth. To trial or not? The allergist has told me to give him a teaspoon of scrambled egg and build from there each day. I would appreciate any knowledge you have to bestow on me. Should we wait? Should we go for it? Is there a magic age that kids seem to grow out of what is admittedly a very mild case (in the sense that we have one trigger) of FPIES. Thank you in advance.
