: My son on occasion gets a devious look on his face and laughs on and on. During this, he also misbehaves and tends to burry his face into a pillow or couch. He does not seem to be able to stop no matter what we do.
: Has anyone else seen this and what does it mean?
REPLY: There are posters here whose kids have had this problem and I hope they will reply also. This could be an allergic response to a food or pollens, dust, other odors that are toxic to him. It could also be from a lack of balance of the body systems. Common ones seem to be allergic responses and sometimes from phenolic foods, or food dyes/colors, sometimes from sugars, sometimes from yeast or bacteria overload in the gut. If you don't, you must keep a log of daily observations from the foods he eats and drinks, to the types of soaps or other common 'things' around him and note any uncommon things he may be in contact with. After one of those sessions, do a review of your notes. If one week doesn't work, try several. A daily log is a very necessary thing for diagnosing by you or Dr's., med. personnel love it, makes the problems easier to track, etc. Are you on a special diet or therapies with him? Sometimes they develop allergic reactions to foods they've already been 'assigned' on special diets. Hoping others reply but do keep a log. Grandma Peg
