Does anyone have a child who has reacted to Coca Cola? My multi-allergic son reacted today - hives on face, neck and arms before anti-histamine took effect. He was also coughing, although this sounded like a normal cough and was probably caused by the anti-histamine going down the wrong way (he coughed the first dose up).
The only other thing it could have been was salted potato chips although these area brand which is safe for peanut and tree nut allergic people.
Hives disappeared quickly once anti-histamine took effect but I have no doubt the reaction would have spread if I hadn't given it to him.
Because of the coughing I was seconds away from giving him epipen - quite scary.
