    Default Help, rash! Food allergy?

    My 9 month old got this little spot on his elbow about a week ago. I thought it was just dry skin because the spot wasn't completely circular. Today, he got 3 more...another on his elbow...one on his leg and one on his arm. He did get a little red rash on his face, but it went away quickly. I would think it was a food allergy, but the only thing he has eaten today...and when he got the spot on his face...was prunes. Which he has been eating for a while. Could he suddenly be allergic to something he never was before? I also tried to give him Squash today that could have gotten on him, but he's eaten that several times before too.
