I would have to check to see what his specific numbers were. But his milk allergy has continued to increase, although we have tried to avoid any and all milk with him. The last time we had him tested (this past Feb) we didn't get the numbers to compare them with the previous ones. If you want to know more specifics I could find them out for you.
He doesn't have any asthma. I will give you a little backround. He had a reaction to milk based formula (hives) at 5 wks old, so we had him tested when he was 6 months old. Besides the food he was also allergic to cats, dogs, & mice. His allergy dr said we needed to get rid of our cat (our only pet) or he could possibly develop asthma. Since then we have been a pet free home. He has some seasonal allergies and still is allergic to pets. Even though the levels of his dog allergy have gone down, the cat allergy has gone up. But he has not had any problems more than sneezing, runny nose, etc.
One thing that really helped us was that we were in Baltimore at the time. They have a great allergy specialist. Even though she was really busy, she had this wonderful, very informed nurse, who was able to answer alot of our questions. Even things like where to buy certain foods that would be OK. I wonder if there is anyone like that in your area.
I will be happy to answer any of your questions, but I can only speak from personal experience. It would help if you had an experienced medical person to ask.
Hang in there! It does get easier, even though it may not seem like it right now. Feel free to ask me anything else.
