Over the past few weeks JT has been getting lots of rashes on and off. He’s got some eczema acting up on his forehead and is getting an occasional welt or hive on his face. I think mostly it is in response to spring time, which is typically a tough time of year for JT. He is allergic to different grasses and pollens and I’m sure other flora and fauna that we haven’t tested for.
The other day, after eating an apple, JT broke out all around his mouth. He has never reacted to apple before so I’m wondering if it is Oral Allergy Syndrome? If you don’t know about Oral Allergy Syndrome, you should read this post written by Celiac and Allergy Adventures. And if you aren’t following her blog already, I recommend it. Her perspective as an allergic adult gives me a glimpse into and hope for JT’s future.
This is not a great photo but I snapped a shot real quick to send to my husband. If you look closely you can see the rash goes all the way around his mouth.
Has anyone else had any issues with Oral Allergy Syndrome just popping up this season?
