Hi Kelly:
Your son's constant runny nose might be due to hayfever (allergic rhinitis). I don't know about your neck of the woods but it's high pollen season here and I'm popping Claritin daily.

It is definitely possible to react to cooked egg protein. My son is allergic to eggs and has reacted with full body hives (which recurred for a week) after eating pizza crust containing egg. Pizza is baked at 500 degrees! He has also reacted to pasta boiled in the same water as pasta which contained egg (at a restaurant). Just like other food allergies, there is a spectrum of reactions with egg allergy. Our allergist said that some egg allergic individuals can tolerate baked goods containing egg. My son is just not one of them!
Mom to 6 yr old PA/TNA daughter and 2 1/2 yr old son who is allergic to eggs.
