Accidental "Contaminations"

After having been on a gluten/casein free diet for over 6 months this is how long it took for Barrett to get over eating bad foods and how much they affected him

The effects of a cheese cracker:
  • Stomach cramps a few hours later
  • A few hours of being extra sensitive (cries or throws a tantrum over every little thing)
  • 2 or 3 "contaminated" diapers
  • Waking up multiple times that night
The effects of a powdered donut:
  • Two weeks of stomach cramps and bad diapers
  • Two weeks of night waking
  • An additional week of effects tapering off
  • Several days of being extra sensitive
  • Always manages to pick up a nasty cold during this type of contamination
  • Eczema flares up for a few days
  • Diaper rash burns
The effects of 5 corn chips (with soybean oil--not sure what triggered the reaction)
  • Two weeks of extremely bad diapers
  • Two weeks of night waking
  • An additional week of tapering off
  • Several days of being extra sensitive
  • Always manages to pick up a nasty cold during this type of contamination
  • Eczema flares up for a few days
  • Diaper rash burns
