DD was eating roasted potatos last night (just potatos tossed in canola oil with garlic powder, parsley flakes and pepper) and after she ate a couple she started grabbing her cheeks and they became red. She told me that whenever she eats potatos, sometimes even french fries, that her cheeks feel "tight". No hives or other symptoms.
Have any of you heard of a potato allergy? Could this be some sort of reaction to potatos? I guess it could happen, but this is just happening now. She's eaten potatos before and french fries numerous times with no problems (or so I thought!). Could it have been the oil or garlic powder (maybe it was old?)?
I'll probably have to test for potatos next.
