Detective work pays off
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Today, I finally got some results from allergy testing done today. Remember I have cut out wheat and eggs? Well, I AM allergic to eggs. Although I don't wish allergies on anyone, I am glad that by eliminating food, then trial reintroduction I found what I thought was causing me to break out. I had the blood work a couple weeks ago, then the skin testing today that showed a positive result to an egg allergy.
That is why I have been breaking out. Who knows what else it has caused. They tested me for milk and eggs. Milk is ok. They have not done any testing on wheat, but I have pretty much not been eating it since February unless accidentally.
I have found some items to substitute in baking - yogurt in making banana bread or cookies. I need to keep reading labels, and experiment in my kitchen. Anyone know of mayonnaise substitutes since I can't have the eggs? Mostly for when I make tuna salad, though I can have it without, I just wondered if anyone had any good ideas.
Yay for clearer skin. Egg-sactly.
