It's possible. You might want to keep her off tomatoes and aubergines as well, as they come from the same family.

what are you feeding her with the potato? Might be something to do with that?

Good luck

How well are you cooking the potato? Mash is less allergenic than boiled pieces for instance.

Also, the "eyes" (bits where the roots/stalks grow) on the potato have chemicals that can cause tummy upsets (although you are probably cutting those off, might do to cut off a chunk of surrounding tissue as well)

DS is intolerant to it, his face becomes red when he eats them, so it's possible.

Yes it can. My ds was very sensitive to them initially - now his favourite food. Try double boiling, or just reheating and reheating to try to change the protein. it could be the variety is very high in something she is allergic to.

It sounds like it's these specific potatos then.
