    Default Honey & hay fever / respiratory question.

    DD has systematic croup (sp?)

    It's like a form of children's asthma & hay fever combined (that's my understand anyway, please correct if wrong)

    Here's my question if pollen makes her symptoms worse, is she likely to have any reactions to honey?

    She's had a lot of honey on toast the last couple of days & I'm wondering if this could be the cause of her cough/fever.

    She's only every had small amounts in cakes etc before, never a lot until last week (was all we had in the house, she's usually a peanut butter/vegimite girl)

    Is it possible to have reactions like this to honey? Or do you think it's completely unrelated?

    TIA

    With hayfever using locally harvested raw honey at around three to six tsp a day can actually alleviate symptoms.

    Cant say what is happening with your little one, but the above is very effective management and works very well.

    Yes, my allergist told me to avoid honey and apples with pollen allergies.

    I have heard that too, but the honey has to be raw for it to work (supermarket honey is pasteurised)
