Janelle is allergic to apples, bananas and corn, but she has only tried 12 foods total, so that is a lot! She also has severe reflux(was on reglan and zantac till 7 months, now just zantac) and at 10 months is only 14 lbs. She also had normal seasonal allergies this year and was miserable till I finally gave in and started zyrtec. Our ped said they really can't do accurate allergy tests till she is 2 years old so we haven't explored that yet.
Her allergic reactions however are much more severe than a red bottom. With corn and bananas she broke out in a horrible rash around her mouth and bottom, and then a lesser rash all over her whole body. With apples her mouth, eyes, and tongue swelled up huge, you could hardly see her eyes and she couldn't even fit her tongue back into her mouth, she also had hives every where and trouble breathing and had to go to ER. We stopped trying new foods after that (it happened at 7 months old) and waited to see what the pediatrician had to say at 9 months.
