Posted by on May. 15, 2012 at 3:51 PM

 Anyone's child ever have an allergic reaction through bm because of something you ate? Or do you know of anyone who has experienced this. We ended up in the ER room yesterday after LO had a severe reaction. We still can't pin down what, nothing he ate was new to him unless its a newly developed allergy. I'm wondering if I should also be charting my foods.

If it was that serious of a reaction I would eliminate everything except chicken vegetable and rice. Then slowly add things for a week before adding a new item keeping a journal.

I had one who had a bad reaction to peanuts at 6 months and 10 months. She broke out in hives from head to toe, but not ER worthy. My nursling at this time reacts to tree nuts. He get gassy, poops more often and gets lots of pimples.

 From my diet, his or both?

My friends son had a reaction to almonds because- get this- she ate honey but Cheerios!! It was a severe reaction and they skin tested him and found out it was an extreme almond allergy, at 9 months. Her allergist said that was very rare, but my friend has a family full of extreme allergies. Her daughter is severely allergic to peanuts, eggs and dairy.

No extreme reactions.   My first broke out in a full body rash after I just had an itty bitty bit of strawberries...  but I just didn't eat fresh strawberries anymore and he outgrew it.

Oh wow poor kids. My side of the family also has bad allegies from watermelon to bananas and me well I'm allergic to so many fresh fruits and veggies. I really do need to find out whats bothering him though bc this is our 2nd ER trip for hives and this time was worse with breathing issues and face swelling.

I would bring him to an allergist to get allergy testing done (which may actually not tell you anything, since under 3 years old can be false negatives).

I would eliminate the top 8 allergens from both of your diets & wait for allergy testing.

What kind of reaction was it?

DS reacts to 6 foods so far, 5 of which were foods that I have eaten (he's never directly eaten them). There's also a group on here on young children with asthma & allergies you may want to join.

No, nothing like that. Some irritating BMs when I consumed my homemade gazpacho for lunch, afternoon snack, and dinner (acid from tomatoes and lime).
