Most common food allergies:

Milk, soy, peanuts, wheat, corn

Others:

Other nuts, coconut, apples, strawberries and other berries, sugar, pineapple, and many more I can't think of.

Also, my kids are sensitive to some food colorings. Red, yellow, caramel coloring (found in most dark sodas and some candy), and all the other colorings can trigger food sensitivities.

Have you noticed any triggers? Like, do you give him something only occasionally as a treat? My little sister used to throw up every time she would eat butter scotch candy. My older sister would throw up every time she ate cool ranch doritos.

I'm kind of surprised that your doctor would not want to test for food allergies. Food allergies get worse and worse every time a child is exposed to them, and he may vomit the first few times, but then maybe it would turn into anaphylactic shock and end up in a trip the emergency room.

This is my own experience talking here with having to rush my son to the ER from a food allergy reaction, so I may be a little paranoid ;)

Thanks for your input, Timpani. I am going to ask the doctor about it again because I think you raise a good point.
