It's a first for our family... we have a food allergy.
Sunday night I made the kids apple shakers (sliced apples in a zip lock bag with cinnamon and sugar). After they were finished I washed the cinnamon off their hands and faces. Daniel's face was all red and puffy. It went away before bed time but when I went to give him a bath his body was covered in hives. After a few applications of hydro cortisone it disappeared.
Last night since most of the hives are gone, I decided to do a test. I put cinnamon on his arm. After 2minutes Daniel was screaming that it hurt and grabbed a rag to wipe it off. It was itchy, red, and swollen. I have a Dr appt early next week, but am pretty sure I know the what the Dr is going to say. I am putting on my paranoid mother hat, I just need to be reassured it is OK and find out how careful I need to be.
