Possibility of new allergy developing Page 1

My 6 year old grandson has peanut and tree nut allergies and excema. Despite reading every label, this summer has been terrible for his skin. His excema and itching has flared to the point that he is stratching the blood out of himself. Steroids are the only medicine that helps. But he can only be on this for 5 days at a time. As soon as he completes the round of medicine he breaks out again. My question is "could he have developed a new allergy?" Possibly to soy since we are substituting soy butter for peanut butter.

No. We have not applied any since the first of summer because it irritated his skin so. Limited swimming also due to skin issues.
