We think Jessi s allergic to Mandarins as she had a bad reaction (rear end wise - rash/runs etc) the other day.

I am obviously steering clear of that for now, but is pear and peaches ok?! She is scoffing pear at the moment but worried in case she has another reaction.

We know she is fine with Kiwi and Banana.... so will pear and peaches be ok?!

PLEASE someone tell me i wont have screams and nasty nappies tonight!!!

well if she's eating it right now then it's too late! lol
i think you;ll be ok... there is no way of telling. but citrus fruits can cause allergic reaction

is pear and peaches classed as citrus?!

starlover Fri 29-Jul-05 17:41:43

ac6tually just read it up in my book and says most common allergic reaction to citrus is skin rashes and excema,


so maybe she just ate too much?

nope ... not citrus HTH

no.. it gives pear as an alternative so should be fine!

it says avoid oranges, satsumas etc orange loliies and squash!

wouldnt sore blistered bum be considered skin rash?!

im just so confused by all this! The runs, fair enough, its why i gave it to her in the first palce, she had been a bit bunged up.... but she litterally has blisters on her bum

teething? that can cause nappy rash apparently!

not sure... i would steer clear for the moment... but perhaps try her again with a small amount in a month or so... and see if it happens again

i mean, it could have been anything really... wouldn't jump to conclusions unless it happens a couple of times

Oh my its awful isnt it.
DS has the most horrific blisters and sore bum when he has oranges.
Tangerines are ok funnily enough but oranges oooooooooh nasty.

My dad has an allergy to citrus, and he was advised to avoid tomatoes as well, as the level of citric acid is similar. It might be worth avoiding tomatoes as well for a while, until you know for sure whether it's citrus that's causing the problem.
