The soy allergy is gone!! YEAH!!!

We still have to be careful with legumes, but soy itself is clear. OOohhhh

However egg allergy is back.

Gain one lose one. I' d rather deal with the egg allergy than the soy.

Congratulations, that is terrific!!! Sorry about the egg, though. Did your doctor use Rast or skin testing to determine that the egg allergy was back?

thanks a lot.
For the egg allergy, it was a skin test with some egg extract which confirmed an allergy to egg white. The yolk was uncertain so we tried a scratch test with an actual yolk, and that was a positive.
So the allergy's very light, and he can still have cakes and stuff like that, just no omelet or egg sandwishes. Quite easy to live with, compared to soy, which I think is worse than peanuts/nuts.
