FPIES is a delayed non igE allergy which typically causes projectile vomiting 2-6hrs after an offending food is eaten. The most common foods that cause a problem are milk,soya,rice,oats,egg, poultry,legumes and sweet potatoes but any food can cause a reaction. This is a rare condition but studies suggest it often goes undiagnosed.
My son is 11 months and has this condition. I am trying to raise awareness and also i have set up a facebook page today to offer support for those families affected in the uk as all other sites tend to be based in America.
