Food Color Reaction??
My six year old PA son had ended up covered in hives in the ER last night. Benadryl given at home had not worked when the first hives started, thus the ER visit. He's fine and did not go into shock. The docs aren't sure what caused it, as he had no exposure to peanuts that we know of. He did have a burrito from a restaurant that we've been eating at for years. The only thing in the burrito was chicken and cheese. I will be calling them though to see if I can find the source of the incident. My question for you all is this.... has anyone had experience with allergic reactions from the coloring in foods? My mom had given him "Hot Color" fruit rollups yesturday afternoon. The ER doc said the coloring might have been the cause.
