             My son has a severe allergy to eggs. If he eats anything with egg in it, his skin gets covered from head to toe with eczema. If he comes in contact with egg he will itch his face,breakout in hives,and his eyelids swell up. Pediatrician does not seem to concerned,just tells me keep eggs out of his diet. I have him on strict diet but, over x-mas he was given cookies with egg in them. His skin brokeout and he ended up with the croup. His reactions get worse each time he is exposed and that scares me. My family has realized how bad is allergy is,thank god! What do I do when he starts pre-school? My baby had to get the croup before my family took his allergy serious. How do I trust anyone else?                                                                                               I have seen post were people mention epi-pen, do you have to see allergist to get prescription? Ped. has never mentioned that before.

Has your son ever been to see an allergist? If not, he should be seen by one and yes they can prescribe the epi-pen too as well as a general doctor. Believe it or not, many schools are highly vigiliant when it comes to severe food allergies. I know I have recieved many letters from my daughters school that a certain child had such allergies and to avoid making cupcakes or whatnot for this child. Your son has a rough road ahead of him thats for sure.

Contact the school you are considering enrolling him in and ask them about their policy dealing with children with severe food allergies. An Allergist is also an excellent idea too. Look into IEP and 504 plans and start getting set up for this stuff now while you have the time to look into it all. And there is some hope that he may outgrow his severe allergy once he gets a bit older :)
