dd2 - red tingling, very sore lips after eating food containing Sodium Metabisulphite

Dd2 has been undergoing allergy testing, because of a range of symptoms - weight loss, stomach pains, bloating, gas.

She also has fairly severe asthma (on Clenil, Serevent and Salbutamol)

The RAST test showed a mild reaction to wheat (which I have to ask the consultant about, because we are a largely wheat free house, due to dd1 having a wheat allergy)

I have been noticing that sometimes her lips get very very red, a red line appears around them, they swell very slightly and the skin is very tender.

In the last couple of weeks I have written down what she has eaten when it has happened - and noticed that the common connection seems to be food with Sodium Metabisuplhite in.

Does anyone else have this sort of reaction?

How old is she? If she's old enough for lip gloss etc then also check cosmetics ingredients. My Dd will get similar reactions to tomato and to sweet almond oil in lip balms.
