Anyone know what this reaction might have been from...?

DS who is 19 months is allergic to: dairy, soy, eggs, beef, and lamb.

He recently was covered in hives when I gave him some hummus, even though skin prick test to sesame was negative. That said, he passed a peanut challenge but has had rashes and itching on contact with peanuts too.

The other day I used an Ella's kitchen curry sauce, however he had the most dreadful reaction though, covered in hives and his face was bright red and blotchy. The list of ingredients were are follows:

Organic vegetable stock 38%
(water and organic vegetables: carrots, leeks, onions, swedes and parsnips)
Organic butternut squash 21%
Organic onions 8%, Organic papayas 8%
Organic carrots 7%
Organic green beans 6%
Organic red peppers 4%
Organic basmati rice 3%
Organic coconuts 3%
Organic ginger 1%, Organic garlic <1%
Organic mixed herbs <1%
Organic peppercorns <0.1%

He has had coconut a few times and been fine with it.

So, I wondered if anyone had any clue as to what the offending ingredient may have been? Do any of the above have any links to sesame or peanut allergies?

TIA

the ginger?

nothing else screams possible allergens unless its the peppers?

That said can't you be allergic to anything where thers a protein involved somehow?

Green beans?
Legume, same family as peanut. And Chickpeas in the hummus. My DD is very allergic to these things. And peas, and Lentils, all the same family.

I would also second chick peas in the hummous if it is not the sesame = having said that there can be false negatives on skin prick tests.....

Thank you for your thoughts.

DS is fine with peas, in fact it's all he seems to eat at the moment smile.

Next appointment is in September so'll I hold off until then.

Thanks again
