A nine-month-old baby suffers with regular rashes and swelling as he has at least 50 allergies.
Riley Kinsey’s family live in fear that he could pick up an allergic reaction that is life-threatening.
He is allergic to inflatables and apples – and can’t even cry as his own tears trigger a reaction that leaves his face swollen to double its normal size.
Playing can be difficult for Riley, from Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, as he cannot come into contact with latex, meaning he is allergic to balloons and bouncy castles.
His conditions have had a huge impact on his parents Kayleigh and Michael – who only take Riley out of the house once a week.
Kayleigh, 24, said: ‘We only take him when we have to, no more than once a week. It’s too risky otherwise.
‘He’s become a prisoner in his house because the outside world is so risky for him.
‘We ask ourselves if he’ll able to go to a normal school or even something straightforward like going to a park.
‘It’s heartbreaking. It’s not nice to see him like this.’
He has reactions to almost every item of food in their house, and only eats turkey, carrots, plums and sweet potatoes.
Members of his own family even refuse to hold him in case they trigger a dangerous reaction, his parents said.
Michael added: ‘It upsets me that he may not be able to go and kick a ball on a field with his friends.
‘This will impact his whole life but also ours.
‘But at the end of the day he’s my son and I will deal with whatever I have to as I want the very best for him.’
The couple have had to operate a strict daily cleaning routine as many of Riley’s allergies are airborne.
They have even been forced to spend £5,000 on re-carpeting their entire home to make it safer for the little boy.
