Hi! My daughter is 8 1/2 months old and she has been showing signs of being allergic to apples and peaches. When I introduced apples, she developed dark reddish circles under her eyes and seemed to rub her eyes a lot. I couldn't be sure at the time if it was the apples or teething or a cold, etc. so I stopped the apples and tried to reintroduce them just recently. She had similar symptoms again. I introduced peaches recently and she developed a few spots around her eyes and nose. I think it is a reaction to the peaches.
Has anyone else had this combination of allergies? I did some research on the internet and have found some information on it. Has anyone had their baby tested for allergies? At what age did you have them tested? Was your baby allergic to any other foods? My daughter is fine with bananas and pears.
I have a doctors appointment coming up for her so I will discuss it with him, but I was wondering if other moms had some advice.
