Until we have further information, I would love for you all to share any and all resources that you might have so that I can go into the allergist 'armed' with all the information I can shove into my brain in the next two weeks. My preference is to improve this through nutrition and keeping the house extra clean (even the dusty basement)Perhaps until he goes back to the Dr. I will do my best to keep food logs and such and document how his rash is doing to also bring it to his appointment. Yes I am proactive and will not let any stones go unturned. Especially if there is something that Iwe can do about it.

Peanut/Soy allergy and more
It looks like our family is about to embark a new and different nutritional journey. My cutie pie Nikolas recently had blood work done and unless the test was completely inaccurate it seems he has some definite food and environmental allergies. Dust Mites being the 'high score' has got me busy washing, cleaning and scrubbing in a different mode than usual. It is easier to say that he is not allergic to 5 molds, kentucky bluegrass, dairy and chocolate than to say what he is allergic/sensitive to. Pretty much everything else tested to have at least a small reaction. YIKES... Peanuts was second to the dust mites and the poor child is going to go into shock when I remove his peanut butter.(already searching for an alternative nut butter)
