    Default Reaction to olive oil??

    Just wondering if olive oil (extra virgin) brand says 100% is know to cause skin reactions? My 9mth old breaks out in hives and becomes agitated every time I give him steak....which I cook in a table spoon of olive oil.
    So it's either the steak or oil that is causing this. He has steak other ways (in home made chunky beef pies) and doesn't react.
    He has had steak cooked in this same oil about 3 times and each time he has this reaction.
    Next time I will try cooking with butter but am curious about olive oil allergies?

    Yes it can, sometimes a salicylate intolerance. How is he with berries and tomatoes?

    Do you cook anything else with olive oil that he eats?

    He is fine with tomToes, have not tried berries yet.
    the first 3 times he had steak it was the only thing cooked in the pan on stove and he had nothing with it. Tonight he also had a bowl of veggies puréed from previous nights dinner which were grilled in the fry pan with that olive oil and butter.
    the reactions were identical. Showing within 5mins and cleared after about 15mins but I did apply his eczema cream (weak for face only) when I saw it go bumpy and red around his eyes
    we add olive oil to fried rice and he doesn't react to that. I'm a bit confused.

    Do you think it's because the steak is cooked at higher temperatures - apparently olive oil can be pretty toxic at high temperatures.

    I mean, I don't think you cook fried rice in high temperatures...?
