    I do know someone who, when pregnant with her 1st, would get a rash whenever they ate dairy (never had issues non-pregnant). The bub had a lactose allergy and the mum was sure it was no coincidence.

    That said, if you've been chopping anything like onions or tomatoes, the acids could have just irritated your skin. Especially if you're like me when pregnant and a little OCD with the handwashing making my skin dryer and sensitive.

    With DS I started reacting to mangos & raspberries, I had never had a reaction to these before and was still reacting until about 3 months after having DS. Since then no further reactions. DS isn't allergic to them either, which I found weird.

    I also noticed that things I have always reacted to (tomatoes & onions), the reaction was a lot worse. Also my hay fever got worse as well. I ended up having to find a pregnancy friendly anti-histomine to use in emergencies (Polaramine). I'm severely allergic to strawberries so would hate to have seen what that reaction would have been like!

    I'd be worried about eating it too without having anti-histomines on standby. You could try eating a small piece (a couple of small bites) then wait 15min to see if there's a further reaction. If there is don't eat anymore, if not I'd say you're safe to eat the rest.
