For dinner that night we were eating sub sandwiches and chips. I believe it might have been the coconut oil on the Bugles that caused the reaction. We haven't had them in our house during her lifetime. She's hoping it was the sesame seeds on the bread because she doesn't like them. I think she's eaten sesame seeds before, but not coconut.
We ended up giving her two antihistamines and watching her throughout the night (per Dr.'s orders). She went into his office the next morning and was given a clean bill of health, but we still needed to find out what triggered the allergy.
This past Wednesday she went in for testing. She had no apparent food allergy so now we have to keep Benadryl with us at all times and keep a diary of any reactions.
Although she had no food allergies, you can see by the picture that something is causing a strong reaction on the test...
I love cats; I'm sad. We don't have any pets right now, but if we moved a cat would be high on the list to add to our family. Tara loves ALL pets so we'll have to see what her future holds.
For now, I'm glad my child is safe and we know to be on the alert for potential problems.
