reaction after Burger King
My PA/TNA six year old has only had two reactions ever - when he was 11 months, the first time he tried pb, and a few months later to peas )which he had eaten before, but the PA triggered the allergy). We are extremely vigilant, but we do take him to both Burger King and Wendy's. In all these years, we've never had a problem at either place - he alway gets the same thing, nuggets, fries and a shake.
Took him to BK the other day, he ate his fodd and just had some of his shake, asked me to save it in the refrigerator. I took him out to have his team baseball pic taken. He of course was playing with the other kids there, but no one was eating anything. At one point he did look a little pale, but he said he was fine.
We got home and he took his shake out and finished it, then I put him in the bath tub. A few minutes later he called out that he was getting hives - they were on both hands and feet, and one on his cheek. He was shivering quite a lot. I took him out and gave him Benedryl, and sat with him in bed. The hives cleared up right away.
Did he react to the shake? If so, why didn't he react to it earlier? I plan on calling the BK tomorrow to see if they have changed ingredients. I saw the girl make the shake myself, it came right out of the machine. I hate to have to take one of the few places we can get something to eat away, but how can I feel safe ever giving him anything there again?
