    Default Egg allergy/sensitivity?

    I fed DD egg for the first time today (7.5 months old). Just the yolk scrambled but some white may have snuck in. Within an hour she had a runny explosive poo with mucous in it. For those that have experienced egg sensitivities/allergies is this what it's like? She also had mild red rash around her mouth but had been having berries too and sometimes reacts to fruit with a rash.
    She has been constipated for 6 weeks doing only firm small poos so the runny poo is highly unusual for her.
    I was thinking to wait 2-3 days and give it again to see if the same thing happens?

    My DD had a reaction at 6 months, with rash over her face where the egg had come in contact. She didn't have any digestive issues at that time, but now if she tries any egg (confirmed mild egg white allergy after skin prick test) she regurgitates it, and digestive issues can definitely be a sign with allergies/intolerances.

    However, if she'd also had berries, maybe that got her bowel going?

    My DD also has facial rashes after different foods - tomatoes, orange, rockmelon, so your daughter could be sensitive.

    After her first reaction, we avoided egg as a solo item until 12 months (recommended by dr, pead and my SIL's advice as my nephew has egg anaphylaxis), but gave her pancakes/fritters with egg in it.

    Now at 2, she still regurgitates egg, doesn't like eating it (even yolk which she isn't allergic too) but her allergy is very mild.

    My DS2 got hives after I gave him egg at 8months old. It was all over his body, I took another 2years before I introduced it again and he was fine then.

    He also used to get rashes around his mouth quite a lot after eating berries and kiwifruit. Not sure if you're in QLD but we got a referral to Compass Immunology at Greenslopes Hospital and got him allergy tested. He doesn't have any allergies but sensitivities to salicylates, amines and glutamates. It was great getting their advice and the testing done. It's settled down a lot as he's gotten older (he's now 4).

    If the runny poo was the only noticeable reaction I'd be inclined to try again in a couple days and see how you go.
