My 10 yo son and wierd allergy symptoms

Hello,
I have struggled for years with my son and his allergies. He was diagnosed at 9 months with an extreme milk protein allergy. He also appeared to have some sort of seasonal allergy late in August (doctors could never diagnose what this was) which would end up in asthma like symptoms. Since then I have discovered sensitivities to chocolate (hyperactivity), food colors especially red (mindless fiddling with everything), refined cereals (hyperactivity), and he is allergic to dust. He is addicted to bread/carbs, salt and sugar. He also has an insatiable appetite.
From late April through the end of May, my son becomes far more emotional and stressed. He wets the bed nearly every night and wets his pants outside playing, whereas he does not do this any other time of the year. He gets very defeatist, aggressive, exhibits many bipolar type symptoms. He screams for some of the smallest disappointments (sometimes I fear the neighbors will call me in for abuse when all I did was threaten to take a privilege away) attacks me, tries to run away, and beats on himself.
I am looking at the calendar and see this time looming in front of me and dreading it greatly. My son is one year bigger, stronger, and I just lost my father so I don’t feel like I will be able to cope. Most years I barely make it through with my sanity. I have not taken him to any regular doctor, because I know they will want to put him on medication either for ADHD or allergies, and I do not want either. We tried allergy meds with my first son and he could not take them without becoming violent; so I’m pretty certain that my 10yo would be worse; and last year he scared me so that I feared for my safety. Like I said the worst of these symptoms happen mid April through May.
He is generally sensitive to criticism, correction, thinks he knows it all and does not need to be taught. He constantly corrects everyone else and never understands when he should keep his comments to himself. The other times he is very loving and affectionate.
He has trouble concentrating and keeping his hands to himself.
He was born with a sub-dural hematoma which resolved at about 4 months. He began having a terrible cycle of sinus infection, ear infection, bronchitis, at this same age. He was given several courses of antibiotics until about the age of 9 months when the milk protein allergy was discovered. Still whenever he got a cold, it would develop into a lower respiratory infection and he would have to receive breathing treatments. When he would be exposed to milk he would have to have breathing treatments for a week as well. We used a drug called Xopenex. He is very physically fit, active, well coordinated, and loves being outside.
He has chronic congestion and post nasal drip. He has enlarged adenoids. He sleepwalks nearly every night to the bathroom, but we have to help him find it. He has a sunken chest. He has 1 steel cap left in his mouth. I have read that those could cause problems in a child already sensitive to many things.
Please advise what you might suggest.
Thank you

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give him a single dose of Sulphur 200c and see how that affects him in the next 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 3 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Hi, thanks for your reply. Could you educate me on why you are suggesting sulfur?
Thanks

i suggested Sulphur on the basis of the following symptoms. Nux Vomica may also help him later.

*He also has an insatiable appetite

*my son becomes far more emotional and stressed

*He wets the bed nearly every night and wets his pants outside playing

*He screams for some of the smallest disappointments

*He is generally sensitive to criticism, correction, thinks he knows it all and does not need to be taught.

*He constantly corrects everyone else and never understands when he should keep his comments to himself.

*He has chronic congestion and post nasal drip

*He has enlarged adenoids

*He sleepwalks nearly every night

Do you have any other remedies for him in your mind?

Thanks for your reply. I was just interested to know more information, so I know what type of changes I am looking for that is all. I also need clarification about the restrictions.
'Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.'
I know peppermint toothpaste is also restricted, but I don't know...
is he not supposed to be exposed to these at all within the treatment days or just within a certain time frame of taking the dose?

I just received my sulphur order and gave him the one dose yesterday, except I forgot to confirm if the dose you recommended was the same as the dose on the bottle; I gave him the 5 pellets suggested on the bottle instead of 3. Now I am waiting and watching.
I will update you on any developments.
thank you for all your help

**The remedy should not be taken when there are strong odours in mouth. Thatswhy it is said that one should take his remedy with a gap of 30-60 minutes from brushing.

I gave him the 5 pellets suggested on the bottle instead of 3.
**It is ok.

is he not supposed to be exposed to these at all within the treatment days or just within a certain time frame of taking the dose?
**The restrictions apply for the whole treatment period.

Thanks again.
My son had salsa the other night before I could remind that he could not eat onions, will this hamper the effectiveness of the treatment? If so, what should I do?
 
misty rius last decade
It is better to wait for 15 days and forget about the salsa. But there should not be any breach of restrictions now.
 
kadwa last decade
Yes, like I said the salsa was a mistake, and last night my husband added a seasoning to the steak he served for dinner that had some garlic in it, we didn't know it until after he ate it.
Does this mean I have to start over? Please tell me what are the consequences?
Thank you
 
misty rius last decade
Let us forget about the second mistake and wait for 15 days.

you will get a good understanding what is wrong after you read the book by Carolee Bateson-Koch 'Allergies'.
