Allergy to green beans?
DD is 19 months old. Allergic to dairy, soy, peanut & egg. She eats other legumes (pinto beans, red beans) regularly with no problems.
A couple nights ago we had green beans for dinner along with other foods she has eaten before with no problem. She put the bean in her mouth, spit it out and didn't eat another bite. I thought she just didn't like it.
She cried & fussed like something was bothering her. I checked for hives and there was nothing at that time. She seemed okay. About an hour later we noticed a few hives on her face. Gave her benadryl & she was okay.
At the time the green bean didn't really cross my mind, but now I think that must be what she reacted to. I've heard of people being allergic to peas, does anyone have trouble with green beans? Thanks.
