Reaction from garlic powder???????
This is the first time I have seen a reaction from food in over a year. My dd is 2 1/2 and besides from the flu shot I haven't actually seen hives from food yet. She has allergy to egg and peanut.
Last night she was having a bologna sandwich, plain, and apple. She asked for garlic toast I was eating so I toasted a piece of her peanut/egg free bread used her butter, and sprinkled Mccormicks garlic powder on it, she has had all of this before. She was only half-heartedly eating/playing with it and within a few minutes she has 4 patches of red with little hives in them all around her mouth. That is the only thing that I can think of it being is the garlic powder. She has sensitive skin with eczema, but again I have not seen the hives. I gave benadryl, washed her face off, prayed, and watched. She is just fine, now 24hrs later. Anyone have similar reactions? There is no cross-contamination in our home. I buy from peanut free businesses only. She has had all of this before so I don't quite get it.
The bread my husband and I use has honey in it and she hasn't had this before so I just don't let her have it.
Any information would be VERY appreciated.
