Along with his many symptoms due to FPIES, Evan recently had severe IgE type reactions to eggs and milk with big, itchy hives over whole body, trouble breathing, lethargy, and swelling in face, and required epinephrine. With the milk, he also had profuse vomiting. Along with his peanut allergy, there are at least three foods he needs the epi-pen for, if he ingested any amount. He seems to have build up a much stronger reaction to milk and eggs in the past year, so we are increasing the number of epi-pens on hand from 2 to 4, after having it confirmed through prickle testing this week. We do hope he will grow out of some of his allergies!
