I was wondering does any one elses child have an allergy to bananas?.
I had been trying to figure out for a few months now,what was causing a rash on my daughter & today about 15 minutes after eating some banana she got a really bad rash on her face & around her mouth went all bumpy & red.I used sudocrem on it to help bring down the rash.
has anyone else had this happen to their child ?or do you know if its an allergy they can grow out of?.June 17, 2012 at 5:08 pm #122947JedtMember
Bananas are a tricky one, they can be hard to digest and are not advised for snuffly babies. our baby gets snuffly sometimes and I had been giving her banana and our doctor said not to give her that when she has the snuffles, it can make her sinuses more blocked.
If you are really worried, you can have her tested for food intolerances. How does she do with strawberries & oranges?June 18, 2012 at 9:22 am #122955AnonymousInactive
Strawberrys seem to be ok i think,I havent tried her with citrus fruits yet,as i read something about delaying giving them till 8-9 months.
I think I may try her on banana again in about a months time & if she gets the same reaction I wont give it to her again.Its a shame though as bananas are such a good source of potassium.the rash on her face is a lot better today so hopefully it will be gone by tomorrow.June 18, 2012 at 7:28 pm #122983beamsMember
My dd has serious allergies – although she doesnt have an allergy to bananas she says they make her feel funny so she doesnt eat them. From your description it definately sounds like an allergy and i definately wouldnt try her again until you get that checked out as some food allergies can be very seriousJune 19, 2012 at 6:08 pm #123009AnonymousInactive
Hi Beams,I didnt think that bananas could cause ananphalactic shock,I definitely dont want to put my daughters health at risk.
what does your daughter have allergies to?.where did you get her tested?.I am nervous now about introducing citrus fruits or kiwi as i believe that they can cause problems too.June 19, 2012 at 7:53 pm #123015beamsMember
Citrus foods can cause problems – my dd is allergic to peanut, egg and kiwi – she went into anaphylactic shock when i gave her peanut butter at 18 mths and was subsequently tested in the hospital for other foods – she was found to be allergic to egg at that stage too. This Xmas she had an instant reaction (vomit and tingly sore mouth and throat) to kiwi – so had her tested at her annual checkup in the hospital and she was found to be allergic to that too. She isnt a great fruit eater so she hadnt had kiwi prior to this. I dont mean to alarm you – but if you feel your daughter is having a reaction to certain foods i would certainly steer clear until you speak to your gp .June 19, 2012 at 9:18 pm #123017FabienneMember
Was watching tv and a professor Gideon Lack specialised in allergy in London was talking about a study, very interesting.
No definitive conclusions yet but it could change to view on allergy and nutrition for young children.
I don’t want to talk about it more as it was just 1 min report during news reports and I don’t have all the info but if you enjoy doing research look up his name and scientific studies.

Dont try again, ask gp to have her tested… if you have an allergy to a certain food everytime your exposed to it the reaction gets worse and worse, so what might be a red mouth today could be much serious tomorrow.
I know a child that used go red around the mouth from chocolate spread, this happened for years, then after eating 1 nut had a serious reaction, it was only after this happened that you think back to the triggers of the red mouth after eating spead
