Egg allergies are serious and your doctor should order a test to confirm this.

The reason why an egg allergy is considered serious is because many, if not most, vaccines are incubated in eggs. This means that your doctor should re-evaluate your child's vaccination schedule and may even recommend against some vaccinations.

The other significant problem is the strong statistical correlation [overlap] between egg [yolk] and sulfa drug allergies. This sometimes includes an allergic reaction to erythromycin one of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics for children. Again - this is potentially serious and warrants wearing a medic alert bracelet.
