    Allergy, what shld I do?

    I think Inez is allergy to egg yolk...

    This morning I cooked white rice porridge with sweet potato, cauliflower and egg yolk as her lunch and at around 7pm, I noticed little rash beside her mouth and under her lip..

    Is this the 'oral rash'? It look quite itch and a little swollen to me but Inez never scratch her mouth ...

    What shld I do now? Bring her c pediatrician or??

    yup sounds like an allergy
    nothing you can do wht it though..it will go down after a couple of days so dont worry about it
    unless the rash starts to spread n she has breathing difficulties then you shld be very worried..but thts only for severe food allergies
    dont worry it will clear up before you know it..just lay off the eggs for now

    stop giving egg yolk at the moment and try to re-intro it again mayb a month later to confirm whether it is really allergy. if the rashes goes away after few das, dont need see doc i think. but if it worsen or your girl has other symptons of allergies, then should bring to doc asap =)

    dont't have to bring to the doctor. Just avoid egg yolk. My son was also allergic to egg yolk, which he outgrew at 12 mths and then later to egg white, which he outgrew at 18 mths.

    If the rash is really bad and spreads to his whole body, you can feed anti-histamine like Zyrtec. You can get it from the pharmacist at Watson's or Guardian. But if the rash is not affecting your child, eg, being excessively sleepy or itchy, the rash should subside by itself after a few hours.

    If you are worried, best to get your son a full allergy testing. I got my son tested at Dr Tan & Partners @ Scotts. You can see their website here Singapore Allergy Test | Dr Tan and Partners
