Ding ding ding! Duh!

I think Maggie is allergic to tomatoes! Remember her face rashes that I posted about? I've finally connected them to tomatoes. And the other night she threw up in the night after having pizza.

What do y'all think?

It sounds like a reasonable conclusion! I guess if you take the tomatoes away and there is no more rash u will know. It is pretty acidic especially when done as a preservative like the spagetti sauce or pizza sauce.

Picture: This is what happens when you raise a kid on health food and they get ahold of a Coke! Bad mom, that soda is NOT on the reflux diet.
UPDATE: Isaiah is now 12 and off meds! He is doing great, eating again and hopefully will be catching up in the growing department. I am still in the "hoping it sticks" phase, but we're so happy that he's better!
Isaiah had the same issue...and I think Sarah did too (is it terrible that I can't remember?!?) Raw tomatoes were the worst....ketchup seemed fine. Maybe because of all that corn syrup? At any rate, they got a rash and Sarah used to throw up...although come to think of it I'm pretty sure that Sarah's tomato issue was reflux related, since it doesn't happen any more now. Isaiah outgrew it, too. I guess keep her away from them and try again in a few months or even a year? Were they raw, or cooked? Some people (my hubby and his uncle, for example) can't eat raw tomatoes but are fine with cooked ones...there's some chemical explanation as to why that's the case but I guess it isn't uncommon.

I'm so glad to hear your experiences. Y'all are great!

I've sent raw tomatoes to school with her many times and then she'd come home with the face rash, but I didn't put it together.

The other day she had a gerber meal with tomato sauce and boom-face rash.

Then the pizza incident.

I'm gonna call the ped Monday and see if the nurse thinks I need to see the ped. Her 2yr appt isn't until Jan 6.

It seems like a mild reaction but I know that sometimes with exposure, they can escalate so that scares me a little.

When Morgan was little, she did this with dogs. We finally convinced the dr to test her and she was allergic to dogs, dust, and grass. Nothing major. I guess with it being a food thing it scares me a little more.

The nurse said to take her off tomato products. We go in on Jan. 6th so I guess if she hasn't broken out by then...we'll know it was the tomatoes. I guess it won't be too hard, but no pizza for dh and Morgan might be tough. I guess they'll have to eat it for lunch when she's sleeping.
Check with your
doctor first!
