Has anyone had a reaction to any food that your baby has eaten? And what was the reaction? How long does it take before you see a reaction?

My son has had a reaction to wax beans (yellow beans). His face broke out in eczema and got what looked like canker sores in his mouth. The first time it took a day or so to break out but the second time it happend within minutes.

I think my son may have an allergy/intolerance to eggs. I have only been feeding him the yolks, as they recommend. But twice now he has had eggs for breakfast and by bath time he had a rash on his tummy and chest, and seemed to have REALLY icky diapers for a day or so.

My little guy had a reaction to strawberry baby food. It started, I'd say, about 8 or 10 hours after eating them. He got a very sudden diaper rash that was bleeding right after he pooped. I now know that this is a common food to have an allergy to for babies under a year, and I still don't get why they make it in Stage 2???

My 8 month old son is ok, but my 2 1/2 year old reacted to many things during her first year. Her main symptom was eczema. It started out in the diaper area within 24 hours, and then progressed to the cheeks and then would start to spread all over her body until I removed the food for at least a week. I would wait a few weeks/or months and try the food again. I don't think that they were true allergies as she has outgrown all of them except that she can't drink pure milk. The doctor said just eczema as a symptom is usually just a food sensitivity (and usually will be outgrown) and that if it is a true allergy their is usually blood in the stool or a reaction with hives. Hope this helps!

Thanks that is helpful. I didn't know if they would have a reaction right away and I didnt know what to look for either.

My little girl is allergic to bananas. We feed them to her and she broke out in a rash on her stomach within a few hours. We waited for the rash to clear (about a day) then feed her the bananas again about a week later and the same thing happpened. I talked to the pediatric dermatologist (she goes to him for a hemangioma ) and he said she had an allergic reaction to the bananas. We just watch what she eats closely and make sure there is not any bananas in the contents. You would be amazed at how many things have bananas in them. Hope this works.....
