It use to be very difficult because he would vomit all day long because that was how he coped with different smells and textures, but now you would not even know he struggles with it. From my experince, it has been very difficult, its so funny how everyday routines such as hand washing and brusing teeth parents take for granted. I was so happy the day my son finally got over his fear of soap. He is five now, good luck Mama and sorry for the long post.
the throwing up---oh man. I have a very food aversive kid and he will gag and make himself throw up if he is asked to eat anything other than his limited food choices. He also throws up when he's sick even though it's just a cold---the scratchy throat feeling or snot (tmi) will make him throw up. He would get dehydrated when he was little and we had to keep a prescription of anti nausea suppositories. Those days are past, but we still occasionally get the throwing up because of anxiety or oral sensitivity.
