My 15 month old daughter had a reaction to raisins. She broke out in hives and had difficulty breathing. I can't seem to find anything to help me figure it all out.

After consulting a colleague, she pointed out the raisins often have sulfates, molds and yeasts that are present as part of the dehydrating process that can cause an allergic reaction. Rather than assume she is allergic to grapes, have an allergist check to see what she reacts to in an allergy panel. Grapes are such a common food, it'd be a shame if she avoided them mistakenly.

Yes. I am very sure. It was the only thing she had that day that she hadn't had before.

Are you sure it was raisins? That would indicate an allergy to grapes which is very rare.
