my ds is 6 months and has red rash.........
« on: February 17, 2006, 00:42:14 am »
Hi there,

I have introduced some new foods to my son recently and one at a time, I noticed tonight he got some red spots on his cheeks and they had little tiny bumps in them..........hard to say if they were itchy or not.....anyhow, I'm just wondering if this is a case of food allergy, any of the books I look at say ecxema, but somehow I don't think it is.....Also I think my son is teething, but I'm not really sure which I know is weird but I can't see anything!!!!  I have no other explanations for his behaviour??!! ???
Anyhow, thought i would try a post on here, I know babies get allot of rashes and normally I don't really worry at all about a little red skin on the cheeks, only since I am starting some new foods (pears and yoghurt) I thought I should double check about allergy symptoms...........
Thanks for reading!!

It certainly could be a food allergy. Since you know what food it was, I would try it one more time (after the rash is fully gone) to make sure that is in deed what caused it. If there is no reaction this time you can go back to the drawing board. Good luck.
