    Default New food reaction?

    DS had his first try of pancakes, then about 5 minutes later I went to get him and he is all red around his mouth?

    I wasn't watching him closely so it could be something else, but can't imagine what?

    This is the recipe:
    2 small bananas, mashed
    1 large egg
    1 cup milk
    1 cup wholemeal flour
    1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder

    He has had bananas and egg before but everything else is new.

    He's asleep at the moment and doesn't seem too bothered, but I'm a little worried.

    Ooh yes definitely a contact allergy there. Unfortunately it could be from any if the ingredients, even the ones he's had before.
    If he seems uncomfy give him some kiddie claratyne.

    My babe has had similar reactions to wheat when she was younger, though not quite as dramatic. If there is no swelling or discomfort I don't think treatment is necessary - but use your mum instinct of course - is it fading?

    If there is no swelling just keep a close eye on it.

    Maybe try those ingredients again in a few days, separately & on a weekday, in the morning, so you can get to the Dr's easily if needed. My first thought was the egg, has he had milk before? But it could have been anything really

    Goodluck!

    That's how my son went after French toast, he had a reaction to egg. Straight to hospital as he went all red and puffy. We got straight into emergency and all doctors were called and he was monitored and given something. Few hours later we were able to go. How long after it did you put him to sleep?

    No I wouldn't worry about going to the doctor. Just give those ingredients separately over the next few weeks and see if he gets a reaction to any of them.

    I would have some kiddie claratyne in the cupboard in case it happens again. It is quite itchy and sore for kids.

    Has he been sick lately? Two of my kids developed egg allergies as babies but only after they had a cold. A week or so later they were back to normal with no allergies.

    Yes it has faded a lot, it's almost gone... He's still asleep so I don't think it's causing him too much trouble

    He has had egg before (scrambled with a little water), but no, had never tried milk before.

    Is he too young for an allergy test?

    That's a good sign. With the wheat intolerance, my toddler has now grown out of it at almost two - though I still have to limit the amount i.e. she can't just eat sandwiches all day etc. So if it does turn out to be a reaction to flour, take heart it may pass in time. Wheat restricted diets can be a bit of a challenge.
