My DD (6.5 months old) seems to have chronic nasal congestion that develops into a nasty cough which ends up being bronchitis/sinus infection which requires treatment with an antibiotic (twice) and even an oral steriod this last round.
This started when she started daycare so it's hard to say what's just germs and viruses and which might be allergies.
She has no other symptoms that would indicate a food allergy - never had a trace of eczema, no diaper rashes (other than from the antibiotics), has normal-looking stools.
Any thoughts? The ped just thinks "allergies" - I guess because there are no other indications of food allergies we're just chalking it up to environmental allergies?
She has not started solids as she has no interest (we've tried some but not pushed it - she's really NOT interested!)
DS had similar issues (without the nasty cough) at this age BUT with eczema. We had him allergy tested around 6 months and it was all negative. He does not have any food allergies and now as a 3 year old just has some mild seasonal allergies.
