Husband had reaction to Mexican food
I have a 6 year old boy with peanut allergy. My husband has seasonal allergies, dust, chalk, and had some type of dairy allergy as a child. He is 40 now and I have never seen him have a reaction to anything. We love mexican food. We got take out from a local restaurant here in Wisconsin. Everything he had, he has eaten before. Steak Flautas, rice, beans, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa. During and right after eating he said the inside of his cheek was swollen. He showed me and it looked almost like a golf ball was in his cheek. I only had kids Benadryl fastmelts and I gave him 3 and almost immediately the swelling went away. I just remembered that he had a similar reaction once after eating a fresh pineapple. IS that an anaphylactic reaction? My PA son has never had one, only hive reactions so I've never seen one before. Should I call the restaurant and ask them for all the ingredients that they use in that dish? Thanks for the advice. Debi
