  • Rash, strange poop in the diaper, constant discomfort and screaming, gas.

    But these can ALSO be signs of other problems!

  • son was 2 and a half and we found out that he was allergic to fresh strawberries. He got the little red spots on him almost like a bite. He had been playing outside so we thought maybe it was chiggers. He got up the next morning with hives all over him. We took him to the pediatrician and they said that he may grow out of it. I have not given him strawberries since then. The pediatrician also gave us a prescription for an epi pen (not sure if spelled right). They also said that if he continued having allergies that we would have to send him to a specialist to have it checked out.
