Citrus allergy and hives???

I think my son has an allergy to citrus fruits. The daycare gave him mandarin oranges yesterday and I don't think he's ever had those types of fruits before. Anyway, when he got home he broke out into hives all over his arms and legs. I took him to the dr. this a.m. and they gave him some benadryl and cream and said to avoid citrus for another year. Does anyone else have a child with this allergy or know anything about it? Thanks ladies.

My son ate raspberries when he was about ten months old and had the same thing happen.  He is now two and we have given him raspberries this summer.  He loves them and has not had any sort of recation.  I think sometimes their body is just not ready for that particular food.
