  • yesterday i noticed a red patch on lola's left cheeck..i thought it was a mark from where she slept, but it is still there...does anyone know what symptoms food allergies would come about in a child who has just started solids? would a rash only come up on one cheeck? it also feels a little warm to the touch

    she doesnt seem too bothered by it, but i thought i would ask...she really doesnt swallow alot of the cereal or having a hard time with her tongue reflec to keep any at all in her mouth.

  • I don't think that's allergies. If it were, you would have skin reactions over more of her body. For example, one time I gave Marek fresh strawberries, and within ten minutes he looked like a strawberry himself (little red spots all over his body).

    Is the skin rough or dry? Marek has a tendency to get a red, dry patch just on his left cheek if I don't keep moisturizer on his face. That was the first think I thought of when you posted this.

  • sounds like eczema?? Maybe it's just her body saying ohhh, that's different!

    Eczema can be a sign of food allergies, but if it isn't too bad, I might be likely to think it's just her body adjusting to it. I don't know really........I'm just talkin' outta my a$$!!!

    I don't think it's food allergies. When Cora had a bottle of regular formula she broke out in hives everywhere the formula touched her skin (it got on her neck and all around where her bib sat). Other time's she just got hives all over her body. They went away within 2 hours.
