My Mood:
Redness, swelling on hand - allergy or acid?

DD gets face rashes from tomatoes; the ped has said this is just a sensitive-skin reaction to the acid. Tonight, though, she had both pineapple (fresh, a large chunk) and tomato, and suddenly started crying about needing ice on her arm. The back of her hand and wrist were red and slightly swollen. Could this just be a reaction to acid, or do I need to start thinking allergies? (I'm assuming that she cried because acid got into a scratch, but I'm worried about the swelling.)

ETA: Still a little puffy five minutes later...

Thanks, mamas!
