Re: Jack has hives from strawberries

(((HUGS))) My kids both have food allergies--but my youngest gets really bad ezcema to certain foods. We had him allergy tested and he can't have any strawberries, either. (He had been eating them all Summer, too--I felt so bad and had no idea that was causing his skin to get red and itchy). He also can't have chocolate...he gets a rash on his cheeks, legs, and bum. On Christmas Eve when my oldest was almost 2 I put Burt's Bees lotion on him (baby lotion--the buttermilk kind) because I love the smell and thought it would be nice after his bath to make him smell good for Christmas morning, etc. Well...he woke up looking like he had a sunburn everywhere the lotion had touched. Needless to say, we later realized he is allergic to milk/milk products...and I felt horrible!!!!

Also, my dr. prescribed Zyrtec for DS2 ezcema--if your son keeps breaking out, you might want to try that--it has made a huge difference for him.
