Unhappy Is it normal for DD to be allergic to echinacea?

I got a liquid form at the health food store the other day, and I don't know if it's this or the fresh strawberries I gave DD that made her break out in a rash all over. DD hasn't had strawberries (fresh) in a long time, and they could be the problem. I just wondered if it was normal for ppl to be allergic to this?

I would guess it's the strawberries, just because berries are one of the most common allergins.

Yes - It could be the strawberries - but it def. also, could be the echinacea. Given than herbals are plant based (primarily) anyone can be allergic to any of them if they are allregic to the items they are created with. KWIM?

FOr Echinacea, IIRC, if a person has allergies to anything in the daisy family.

Here's just one place I found some info -

HTH Good luck!
