Just wanting to get some opinions here...
Connor has never had a reaction to anything he's eaten (he' nearly 13 months). He does have sensitive skin (gets that from his mother ), and is prone to eczema. Now, I know that eczema can be linked to food allergies, but based on discussions with his ped we don't think that's the cause. He's had it on and off all his life, it jumps around his body, and its never been severe. Everything has always been cleared up with a good slathering of cetaphil cream and occasional cortizone. The things that seem to bother it most are sweat and drool (so hot days and teething are tougher times!). On Sunday he got strawberries for the first time. Had them again on Monday night and again this evening. I noticed yesterday a few small bumps around his mouth and today its in the crook of his elbows. Its also been very warm these same days (i.e. sweat) and he has a runny nose (which can also irritate the skin on his face).
So, what do you all think, is it an actual reaction to strawberries or am I just more worried about it because strawberries are always talked about as a potential allergen?
We have one more container of strawberries in the fridge and then he likely won't get anymore until we go shopping again. I'm tempted to keep feeding them to him for the next day or two and see if things clear up or get worse.
