No reaction to Reece's Pieces candy?
New to the forums. Not so new to son's diagnosis, but am sad to say I am realizing we need to take his allergy more seriously, so am trying to learn all I can about how to keep DS safe.
He recently ate a leftover Reece's Pieces candy from a coin-operated candy machine at the local pizza place. He usually asks before placing almost anything in his mouth, but at least he told me afterwards that he ate it....
I gave him his Benedryl and proceeded to take him to the ER where he didn't have a reaction. We, along with his allergist, are a bit puzzled.
Anyone else have experience with this candy?
