No, Faith did not get punched in the face. Faith has frequently had hives since the day we meet her. At first, we assumed it was probably stress related but it has progressively gotten worse. After she woke up from nap one day, looking like the picture above, I decided it was time for some allergy testing. Well, the verdict is in and Faith is allergic to most of what I feed her. After the test results we played around with her diet and have come to the follow conclusion. Faith is allergic to milk, eggs, tomato, potato, chicken, peanuts, corn, peas. There were a few others foods that she tested positive for that we do not normally eat. Although she has not had what I would consider a major reaction causing breathing issues her reactions have become more frequent and more severe. SOOOO, I am going to have to make some changes to our menu. If anyone has any great recipes(allergen free) or advice please feel free to share.
