Curious if you think this was a reaction?
My son had a severe anaphylactic episode at 14 months. Since then we have been extremely vigilant and he has not had another exposure. Last week I received a call from the babysitter that his eyes were both very swollen. She did not know what from only that they were playing outside. I thought he may have seasonal allergies and told her to give him some Benadryl.
That was around 11:00 a.m. When I got home at 4:30 p.m. the under part of his eyes were still very swollen. My daughter later told me that the new neighbors had peanut butter crackers and were playing with the same chalk and toys as Ryan. It is very possible that he rubbed his eyes. He has not had this kind of reaction to anything outside before.I guess what surprised me about this (and I feel lucky) was that the reaction was localized. Just wondered if anyone else has experienced this type of localized swelling under the eye area.
