Didn't see that coming ...

Gave Little Warrior a few bites of pizza. Specifically, little bits of cheese. Which she'd had last week.

Rash around the mouth. Eyes puffing up. Her crying. Red ears. Vomiting. Rash slowly going down the length of her body.

Can we say "dairy allergy"?

Which none of my other kids had, nor The Husband or I.

She's fine now, almost back to normal. I'll call the clinic in the morning, plus I already have an appointment with the kids' pediatrician for tomorrow. (Yes, we would have rushed her to the ER had there been any breathing difficulties.)

God DAMN it. What, cardiomyopathy and cancer weren't enough?

Awwww poor baby!

Sorry to hear that, LE. From a strictly amateur point of view, that sounds less like dairy allergies (which are most often accompanied by severe gastrointestinal symptoms) but a tomato allergy. I have a friend who is severely allergic to tomatoes and responds just like LW did to even the tiniest bit of tomato paste, sauce, etc...

Not that tomatoes are much easier to avoid than dairy, but make sure you isolate the actual allergen.
