Just given 9 month old eggy bread, I assume this is an allergic reaction with bright red all round mouth

Can I put her to bed for afternoon nap or do I need to keep her up to check anything else happens?

does she seem ok in herself - would think that if allergic reaction then symptoms are fairly immediate.
nap would be ok - just keep an eye on her frequently.

I would put her to bed, my ds is comes up all red round the mouth after strawberries, but nothing else materializes.

she's in bed and asleep

am loathe to check cos when I do the cheeky monkey wakes up

I assume that any other reactions would have manifested within 20 minutes (time from red patch starting to bed)

sorry .. meant to say thanks

Twig, is it definitely an allergic reaction? Dd gets this red patch thing from eating strawberries, being snotty, having a dummy (trying to do only at night and for sleeps now though) and general slobber. Could it just be from eating?

not sure www

but as I've never seen it before despite drooling for England and this was first time she'd ever had eggs I put 2 and 2 together (I might have made 4 or 56, who knows? )

Twigglet my DD2 has the same thing, can you give her Priton, My DD2 regularly goes to bed with a bright red mouth, I would keep an eye on it, and if you plan to give her the MMR (sorry to bring it up!!!) make sure you mention it to HV.

DD2 had contact allergies BTW

me give one of my children MMR

you really don't hang out on the MMR threads do you

thanks though, good point that I wouldn't have thought of

I did say that I don't "do" the MMR threads, they scare me!!
But because the MMR is egg based, you have to be careful if a child has an allergy to egg

I try and keep eegs away from DD2 as she is always coming in red rashes and hives but she loves them and likes to finish off my fried breakfast when DH makes them, I give her Priton and it goes, we have also discovered she is allergy to red colouring, in beans sauce, smarties etc.
