Crap, looks like its egg. Just had another reaction.
it can take a few tries of a food before they have a reaction, my ds had peanut butter 3 times before he reacted
Just thought I'd update...
Have been to the specialist for allergy testing and yes, DS is allergic to egg.
It's only mild though, fingers crossed he grows out of it in a couple of years!
We go back in 6 months for retesting to see whether the reaction is better, worse, or the same.
Thanks for your help guys!
My nephew had an egg allergy - same reaction, rash around the mouth. He needed to avoid it altogether including baked goods. (Orgran's Egg Replacer works really well in all baking.) Since his sister grew out of her gluten allergy, they were always hopeful he'd grow out of it and started trying him every few months after he turned about 2 (I think?). He grew out of it by the time he was 4.
It's great you've been able to pin it down to a cause. Watch out for baked goods like sausage rolls and even some breads as they are over brushed over with egg.
