search the achives for tomato allergy.

i thought ds had a dribble rash, he had a cold at the same time. was lots of little spots which left very dry, red skin. i had a look on mn and it came up with the tomato thing.

since then i have only been giving ds tomatoes in the form of a pasta sauce, not tomato ketchup and it has almost gone.

see how you get on if you remove it from his diet. n.b. they can also has the reaction from other tomato based products and raw toms.
