FPIES is an allergic reaction in the gastrointestinal system to food that typically starts within the first year of life. The most common triggers are milk and soy, but any food can cause an FPIES reaction. FPIES reactions are characterized by profuse vomiting and diarrhea and usually begin about 2 hours after ingestion of the causative food.
