I went to breastfeed my 10th month old son and put m down
I went to breastfeed my 10th month old son and put him down for a nap. He was really fussy and so I had to rock him quite a bit before he fell asleep. He slept about 20min and then woke up and vomited all over the bed. I thought it was because was rocking him after feeding him so I cleaned him up and put him in the living room to play. A little while later I noticed that he had big welts or hives on the back of his neck. I asked my husband what he fed him for lunch and my husband told me he fed him scrambled eggs which he had never had before. My son then had a huge diarrhea. So while cleaning him up I noticed that he was red all over his stomach had small welts on his legs and his head. So I called the pharmacy and they told me to give him 2.5mg of loratadine. So I gave him that. 30 min later my son vomited again. But the welts were going away and the redness was less so I figured he was ok. The pharmacy said that I could only give him that once in a 24 hour period. Will my son need more medication? Will his hives come back? He started to have some trouble swallowing when I was giving him the loratadine but he hasn't shown any signs of breathing problems or wheezing. What should I do if his welts or hives come back.
My 2 year old daughter has a red patch about the
Hi, my 2 year old daughter has a red patch about the circumference of an eraser on her arm, and it has been around since a little after her birth.Most of the time the patch is flat. Sometimes at random intervals, the patch swells up like a hive and then goes back down.It does not itch or irritate her. I've attached some photos. Can you determine what this is and what we should treat it with?

If I am allergic to bee stings, what are the odds that my daughter will be? I get paranoid that a bee sting may harm her. She has lots of seasonal and skin allergies which are mostly unexplained. She randomly gets hives since she was a few months old.Have never really been able to pin point the allergies...they have never harmed her and benedryl always makes it go away. Her pediatrician has advised against putting her through allergy testing for these reasons. Now that she is school age and I cannot followher around 24/7 armed with benedryl, I'm worried that she will be stung on the school yard and it will be terrible

My daughter is 5 years old. All of her life she has suffered
My daughter is 5 years old. All of her life she has suffered from allergies. She seems to have a year round "cold" from the allergies...and at any given time, we can look at her and she has hives that were not there 5 minutes ago. (and who knows what shetouched!). She became severely allergic to her guinea pigs a whole year after having them. Benedryl takes her hives away quickly. And we give her Claritin, Zyrtec, & Allegra regularly. (Once she becomes immune to one, we move on to another brand). She is otherwisea very healthy child. About twice a month, she gets an upset stomach, no appetite, sometimes vomiting, and a low grade fever. These symptoms never last more than 12-18 hours. It feels very strange to us & too frequent. She doesn't get to the dr because itsgone by the next morning. Even when we've called the doctor, their answer is "kids pickup germs everywhere... if her symptoms remain for so many days call back and we'll see her". Is it possible for allergies to cause these symptoms in her?

My grandson 3 y/o and 31.5 has food allergies. He only gets hives and rash. One of his allergens is almonds. He just got one and we gave him a Benedryl. It was a 25mg! Do we need to go to ER Or will that dose be OK? He has had Benadryl (childrens) many times for food allergens.
