    Question SUDDEN ALLERGY symptoms?

    so far, luna seemed to be allergy free. the only obvious symptom of a POSSIBLE allergy is the ring around the anus, but thats al. her poops were the normal yellow, and she had no excema or rashes other than acid burn from the diaper brand

    then i noticed that after i ate garlic bread she developed a bumpy irritated kind of rash and her poops turned green and mucusy.

    today her poops have been really mucusy, and i noticed hive like bumps on her back, made obvious when i hold her with one hand at my shoulder with out a onesie. shesv also been extra gassy lately too.

    do milk allergies accure late or is it ossible shes allergic to something else?

    the only other thing i can think of acruing a reaction would be cinamon raisin bagels w/cream cheese. thats the only other things ive eaten in the past few days.

    Could she just be getting sick? Any fever? Stuffy nose?
    Sometimes children get sick with a rash that just cleans up on it's own. It could be a virus.
    Allergies do typically get worse and worse reactions but this does not sound like allergy to me.
    Feel better soon

    I was eating dairy up until 10mo with no obvious signs of a reaction. LO got a hold of his big brother's sippy of milk, and bam. Mega reaction. Positive SPT for milk. So I guess it's possible.

    Has it cleared up any? A call to the ped. might be in order if you're still worried. Could it be the grease and garlic from the bread? Has she been on any ABX or Tylenol or anything else that may have irritated her tummy?

    Cinnamon always makes my LO's break out around the mouth / face, but only from eating it directly on food.

    no antibiotics and tylenol is only used if shes in obvious pain.

    and the grease was long off my hands.

    most of the symptoms have cleared up. the only thing im not sure of is the breakout on her back, which i wont kknow ti,ll i walk around without a onesie

    Perhaps it could have been the lotion. And I think Garlic can be an irritant to little babies too, even though breast milk. So if I had to guess, I would put my money on one of those. Mine would get major farts after I ate spicy food, which I just love!

    And my lo's diapers can change from day to day. Different colors, textures, smells But if the mucous persists I would say there could possibly be a problem. Can't hurt to bring it up next time you are at the ped's office.

    well the poops gone back to yellow so whatever i atet that bothered her is probably gone? milk protiens take too long to clear up so it probably was either the garlic or the cinamon. ill try an experiment with the bagels tomorow.
