Reaction at birthday party Sunday ,
I posted on the main board , couldn't find this section.
Sophie my 5 yr old attended a birthday party yesterday , very careful mom who is a teacher bought cake from a "safe" bakery, I checked the food for the party it was all fine, but when I picked her up her face was red and hives all around her mouth ,I don't know what did it could have been contact situation a child at the party I didn't ask if they eat peanut butter or nuts at home?? we were told to not let her have seafood, could it be trace seafood? I will call the mom later today and try and figure it out. The reaction was tamed by benadryl , it didn't go past rash and hives but it was much more stubborn than other exposures which went away on their own, I feel fragile today , no more parties until I can get a handle on this , I do see the reactions getting worse, her face is blood shot today and there is some exzema on her chin,which she does not get. The worst part was waiting to see for 6 hours after we picked her up if it would turn for the worst. She hates to talk about it she clammed up when we asked her what she ate. That makes me crazy I see her point but she can't not talk to us about it.
Tomorrow we are going on a class trip to a farm ,I will be there cross your fingers all goes well,I spoke to the owner , a few trees to avoid but seems clear for the most part, but that's what I felt yesterday , I let my guard down.
Guard is up way way up.
Her teacher laughed when I told her the reason I wanted to volunteer for the trip was primarily because of her allergy.They just don't get it.
I decided it was ok to go Webkinz shopping today a little spoiling seemed in order, to make up for her rough break , she has been struggling with her allergy, mostly when dressing for school when she has to wear her epipen belt she hates that thing.
She is feeling fine now and doesn't want to discuss ALLERGY she says.
