Re: Does this sound like dairy sensitivity?

It seemed going back on it made his reaction worse, but at least I know what the trouble is. Good luck. Dairy free is the hardest thing I have ever had to do!! We are not thinking he might also have a soy sensitivity.

His symptoms were:

Gas (tons)
Mucous And blood filled stool
Blisters around his anus
A red ring allergy rash

Hope that helps!
This does help. I just don't know if it is a sensitivity or not, as the only thing that points to it is the mucousy/ green poops. She is not fussy or gassy at all. I am going to sticky w/ the no dairy for the whole 2-3 wks though. I suspect she had some sensitivity to tomato as well, since one night i had seconds of very saucy pasta, and she was pretty fussy the next day. But the yucky poops happen more often than just when I eat marinara sauce, so I'm just going to see what happens.
