Farm Kid Brushing Away Cavities, Allergies to Ride with Dad

November 17, 2016 12:18 PM

Toothpaste commercials make a lot of promises, brighter smile, less plaque, and whiter teeth. Now, they could help those who suffer from allergies.

Liam Stump, 5, plays inside with his toy tractor while his younger brother rides in a real tractor with their dad. Liam’s severe allergies keep him hidden inside during harvest.

“The corn is just horrible for his allergies when he is around that corn dust,” said Kayle, his mom. “He cries a lot to me and to his dad because he can’t go out in the tractor.”

Recently, an allergy attack sent Liam to the hospital, and prescription and over-the-counter medications haven’t helped.

The University of Missouri Health Care has a new kind of treatment for Liam to literally brush off his allergies.

Watch Liam’s story on AgDay above to find out when he could be riding in the tractor with his dad.
