We're on day 2.5, now, and she is still covered with spots. I have to give her benadryl about every 6 hours to keep the itching at bay.<br><br>
We suspect a nickel allergy. Well, I know she's allergic to nickel, but she's only had contact dermatits before. But the other day she was wearing a necklace and I saw she was sucking on part of it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">: She knows she shouldn't put anything metallic in her mouth, sans eating utensils. But she must have forgot.<br><br>
Anyway, I'm thinking she sucked on it long enough to get it into her system - much like a food allergy - and had a full-blown reaction.<br><br>
How long do you think I should wait for this to resolve before I try something else or explore other possible allergens? I'm allergic to shellfish, and after one tiny bit of shrimp tail I had to take benadryl almost non-stop for over a week. Is that okay to do for my daughter?<br><br>
Any ideas or feedback?<br><br>
TIA!
