The first table food my youngest ever had was a cookie. It was Christmas time and we had given him small pieces of them on two occaisions (the second being the time he reacted). After we confirmed it was egg he reacted to, our allergist advised that we hold off introducing chicken "for now". Do any of you with egg allergies have trouble with chicken as well? How long before you were able to try chicken with an egg allergic child? It's so hard to have that in the mix with the 2 food allergies already!

If there is a link, this is the first I've heard of it.

CM- I've been sitting here thinking back to our office visit...then I remembered she sent us home with a TON of reading material...I can't find the one sheet that gave a more in depth description, but I did find one sheet that states "Occasionally a person sensitive to egg is also sensitive to the meat of egg-laying chickens"...I believe the sheet I can't find (of course) said something like, most people are allergic to the same protien in egg; however, there is another protien,and if allergic to that one, you may also be allergic to chicken....something like that. I'll have to google it now!
