Allergy or not?
Hi all

I gave Jazzy a 1/2 of a clemintine two days ago and she has the most horrible red rash on her vagina and anus. It is red and buring hot. I am wondering if you guys think this is an allergy or does it sound like a reaction to the acid in citrus?

Thanks!

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
My guess would be it's the acid but that's just a guess. Are there any other symptoms?

This is our dd, Alessandra. Dx with GER 10/07. Ran the gamut with meds and now done with them (crossed fingers). Using magnesium, probiotics and prebiotic supplements. With the exception of teething and general sassy attitude, all is well now. They really CAN grow out of it!
Definitely sounds like an allergy - I believe from what I can remember of my immunology course in college that citrus allergy causes a genitourinary rash.

Mary & Nicholas 7-17-03 (non-refluxer)allergies, asthma on Singulair and Flovent & Aidan 1-28-07(my refluxer)Nissen Fundoplication on June 20, 2008, FTT, MSPI, DGE, ear tubes, allergies and severe GERD now currently taking just Prevacid and drinking Elecare Vanilla 1+.
I think it is just an intolerance. Both my boys get the same rash we call it butt burn from all citrus fruits. They have both been specifically tested for citrus allergy and came back negative. We try to avoid but sometimes I let them have a clementine or strawberry and they almost always get the rash. Hope that helps.

She had diarrhea also, and GI discomfort etc... So hard to tell though... Thanks.
