Don't try a baked-in challenge on your own if your child has been diagnosed with a severe allergy. Your allergist will need to recommend and monitor this kind of test!
We were still onto something, though. He had eaten milk!
Anyways, the purpose of this post is to show how we made a boo-boo early on with the allergist's instructions to give Miles a bite of baked in milk every day. When I found Dunkin Stix contained milk and were a baked good, I thought we would let Miles give them a try.
Well, this is what happened with the tiniest little bite (dime-sized?). His poor little hand started to rash out really prominently. Then I realized doing baked-in milk with some kind of icing or glaze isn't the best idea. What if it was the ICING with the milk, and it was put on the donuts AFTER they were baked. Hence, what if the potential dairy-laden icing wasn't baked??? Bad news.
Or maybe where ever the dairy was (donut, icing, or both)...it wasn't baked enough.
Thankfully, Miles got better with some Benedryl. But we now stick to very simple "baked in milk" foods. In fact, we have done the same old cookie for nearly two years, and our allergist says that is ok......
ESPECIALLY since Miles's numbers went UP for 2012. He nearly got back into Class 3. I will tell more about that soon. Maybe it's because he HAS been exposed to the baked-in milk, and his body is resisting it more in testing. ??? Anyways, for now, we are sticking to our simple Nilla Wafers...2 a day. The allergist said not to worry about "pushing it to more cookies or different products" after his high results this year.
We have done Aldi brand, Target brand, and name brand Nilla Wafers for Miles's baked-in each day. No icing! Straight forward. I hope it turns out that they are helping to some degree.
