Is anyone familiar with a reaction to orange? My toddler got red spots on his face after having orange juice. Wondering if this is a real allergy or just sensitivity that will pass with age. ?

DS was also hyper sensitive at that age and would react to just about everything on his skin, fruit, high histime veggies (eggplant, peppers, tomatoes), pretty much any lotion or ointment.
Our allergies said to use a straw or sippy cup to enusre that no juice would get on his face. As far as the foods we just avoided them and he now can tolerate them without breaking out around his mouth, it took until he was around 2 before his insanely sensitive system could tolerate just about, well , anything.

Thank you!! We'll ask the allergist and try the straw trick. Good to hear the sensitivity went away... DS's skin is reacting to blueberries and other foods as well and every kind of body cream... even eczema cream makes his eczema worse! We are going to try to find a cream without alcohol in it...I get the feeling that causes burning. :)

We tried endless creams and no matter how few ingredients they all flared up his eczema. We stuck to good old vaseline for ages until his body seemed to calm down and accept new things.

My kids (& me) have always had sensitive skin. Now that it's winter and freezing cold/dry, one of the twins is getting contact rashes from various foods, any crumbs or smears left around his mouth will leave a bit of a rash. I find just wiping him off with a damp cloth after eating is enough to keep it at bay. But we did go through a lot of prescription creams when they were younger.

Our allergist also suggested not letting him feed himself foods which might irritate his skin. So most foods we fed him and if he did as Becky said, get food on his face we used a damp cloth and never wipe but dab the skin to clean it.
