Food Allergies

Food Allergies is an abnormal reaction by the body’s immune system to some substance. An allergic reaction to food occurs when the body perceives an ingested food as a threat and overproduces antibodies to counteract it . ( written by author Ruth Yaron).

So far i found out Jeremy has allergies to Egg white and wheat . I been introduce him Kalbe Farma Biscuit for him as teething bite many months ago, it’s shown a serious allergies . The Paed said it’s contain wheat. Maybe Jeremy had allergies to wheat. So i keep away the food until tonight i thot to give him try a little bit of Cereal which is contain wheat and ikan bilis (Nestle) and i mix with multi grain cereal . Just in case…. So give a small amount to try on. I put in 1 spoon of wheat cereal and 3 spoon of multi grain cereal.

As usual Jeremy was enjoying his meal , about less than one hour allergy symptoms shown and occur almost every part of the body. The reaction of the allergies was very fast .Is something like “big rashes” I duno what it’s call in this term of allergy.

I started to get worry . Coz daddy was having his badminton game tonight. But thank God i do keep the medicine of allergies and “tahan gatal” in the fridge. In no wait, i quickly made milk and put the medicine in and let him drink the milk. Very luckily i have the medicine with me. It’s took less then one hour to get off of the Big rash. The rashes will slowly disappear with no mark.

But within that hour, i cant stand to see my boy suffer from itchiness, He started to get “mabuk” like turn here and there. Scratch here and there. But good boy didn’t cry at all.


The picture show how serious the rashes that occur the body ( stomach, back, leg , hand, finger, head, abit near the lips, ears and near the ‘bird bird’ part)
Picture 1 : The reaction of the allergies after taken the Wheat.
Picture 2 : Give him pacifier to cool him down.
Picture 3 : After 2 hour he fall asleep after taken the milk and medicine, cos the “tahan Gatal” medicine will make him feel sleepy.


Well, i took the pictures of the allergies is becos one of my friend been asking me how is a allergies rash look like, i been trying to explain to her, but i not sure was she understand. So hwee pin .. this is the “big rash” i been mention to you and it’s was the same rash happen to Jeremy while he trying his teething Biscuit.

Last, No More Wheat for my boy not even a little bit of wheat . So kesian u know to see him suffer from the itchiness ? Must ask advised from paed till Jeremy was save taken food which contain wheat.

Just wanna to share this message with u, maybe some of u doesn’t know how is a rashes look like from a food allergies and this allergies is occur on the skin. FYI , if the allergies manifest in the digestive tract it will nausea, diarrhea, if in the respiratory system it will runny nose, wheezing and if at the skin , it will get rashes , hives and etc. As for Jeremy was on the skin.

    it seems like there are still many types of rashes. Elizabeth’s rashes that cause by milk Allergy is different from Jeremy.

    Yeah, no more wheat for Jeremy. I know exactly how you feel. Frankly, everytime Elizabeth takes anything that contain milk, I’m still nervous. So afraid that anything would happen to her….

    And, Thank God. I think she has already get through. No more allergy on milk. As she can take ice-cream,yakult, cereal with milk and so on now.

    Have faith, you should try again. But, not now. May be 9 months or 1 year later. Because we as mummy still hope that they can eat anything as they wish, no restriction, right? 🙂

    “Hang on, Jeremy. There will be one day you get to say “bye bye Allergy” 🙂

    it’s quite common for babies to have allergies, but these kind will usually only last for the first couple of years of the baby’s life. Aiden is the same too. I will usually buy for him Organic biscuits, which is free of wheat, gluten or soy. I get mine from Country Farm @ 1U

    我朋友的孩子以前也是,
    记得哦,那个一岁的预防针,
    含有蛋白的,要跟医生说。。。

    我朋友是之后再慢慢得给她孩子吃些蛋白,
    等到完全没有敏感了,才可以打那个一岁的针

    Poor Jer, he must have suffered being itchy because of the allergy. Joshua has very sensitive skin, so he will always be scratching here and there especially his scalp.

  18. peimun Says:

    poor boy….. since he is so prone to allergy…it’s better you stick with Isomil.

  19. Malaika's mummy Says:

    Hmmm.. my girl’s rashes were not as bad, and not itchy (cause she did not scratch her face).

    Poor Jeremy. I am sure he will outgrow the wheat allergy,cause my husband’s nephew had wheat allergy and this year (9 years old), he seems to be fine taking wheat.

    On the milk, it’s better you stick to Isomil. I heard that Pedisure is very high fat content.

    I think JE’s case (i mean allergy) is different from Jay’s cos the mark on the stomach looks different but doctor said allergy also.
