  • Do you have an after hours number you can call? My dd got them at 4 months and I called them, they sent me to the ER where they gave her some benadryl.

  • I'd call the after hours number to find out what antihistamine they recommend and what dosage to use.

  • Also it might not be the food. My daughter did that if I put new clothes on her that weren't washed yet. If that is the case wipe her down. If it is the foods I would call the after hours number.

  • I would call your pediatrician (most clinics even if closed have someone to take calls if you stay on the line long enough)
    See if you can give a dose of benadryl. And document the peach allergy!
