Is this an allergy?

DD (6 months) keeps getting little red splotches on her face, and a couple of tiny little red spots around her mouth. They've been coming up then disappearing again for the last few days. Any ideas? We've started weaning this week and keep thinking it's maybe an allergy to something we've given her, but then we've barely repeated anything (except carrots a couple of times) so then I keep thinking why would it keep flaring up again? Also does anybody know if she did have an intolerance to something what do you do? Just avoid it thereafter, or can it be overcome with exposure? Any wisdom much appreciated!

I have no advice except to say that my 6.5 mth old is like this. Scary isnt it? The gp thought it was a milk allergy and told us to give him no milk until a year old. I'm unconvinced and wait hopefully for someone with proper knowledge to come along

Could be a reaction to a specific food group. Keep a food diary perhaps and record the splotches in it too?

V odd as I was going to post this too! DD 26 wks and we've been weaning 1-2 meals a days for about 2 weeks. I noticed after some porridge made with milk she got it and i was thinking mmmm milk allergy. No other symptoms though and she just sucked on some pasta/tomato sauce and it happened again.

I'm wondering if it's cos they have food all over their face (well my DD does!) for 20-30 mins. Will try with other things and report back.

Hope your LO ok smile

Are you mixing the food with anything like milk or baby rice? Have you changed the milk she drinks, like from first stage to follow on?

Other than that my only advice would be not to give her solids for at least 2 days and see if it happens in that time and to ask in the allergies section smile
