welp, i just busted out into a full body rash. not to take away from the mama with the full body hives
...i took 2 benadryl and i have prednisone from the allergist here. i also have my epipen ready and waiting.... this sucks.
i sat down to eat sweet potato with dried cranberries, cherries and blueberries, walnuts and hemp oil. i have only had the hemp oil 2 times before but i eat hemp seeds all the time and hemp protein shake a lot. apparently it doesnt matter. the walnuts are a new organic kind for me, but only include walnuts on the ingredients. i have had the dried fruits a million times ad sweet potatoes are a staple for me.
i have never had a food allergy in my life.
i have the epi pen and prednisone from hives and angioedema, including the throat. i posted about this on pumpkin pie's thread about hives...
i started getting random angioedema when dd was 5 weeks old. it turned out to be from tide detergent. i never had anything like this in my life, only mild seasonal allergies. i recently ( 4 days ago) broke out in hives all over and started having angioedema again including throat closing from another "hypoallergenic" detergent with the same ingredients as my usual. my daughter also developed some hives and was acting really fussy and irritable and i dont know if it was from my reaction to detergent, the tomato that i tried that day ( i have had a million tomatoes in my life), or her own reaction to detergent plus tomato.
i have racked my brain trying to figure out why this keeps happening after dd's birth. i know c-sections and abx can make a body do crazy things. i often wonder if the rhogam had something to do with it or the fact that our blood types are incompatable.
thanks for listening, this has been a bad week. now i have diminished milk supply to look forward to from the benadryl.
