XP: 10w old with hives

My 10w old LO had vaccines on Friday. He was fussy and groggy Saturday. Around 1pm Sunday, I noticed hives on his right forearm and right cheek. Since Sunday, he's had hives on and off on his chest, arms, cheeks, neck and scalp.

I took him to the Ped, and he said that as LO is eating, going to the bathroom like normal, and has no respiratory distress, it's probably an allergic reaction.

He's having us limit LOs interaction with the dog, changed his formula to a soy formula, and changed LO's laundry detergent.

Anyone else have anything like this happen to their LOs?

    Are you nursing at all? If so, did you eat any new foods?

  • LO gets 90% of his food from nursing or expressed milk. He only has one formula bottle, the feeding before bed, a day.

    I eat a relatively bland diet because I have colitis, so not a lot of cooked food, lots of whole grains, veggies and fruit, dairy, and two major servings of protein a day.

    I started tracking my food and the hives breakouts this morning to see if anything correlates.

  • If it is something like dairy, a lot of times people with dairy allergies have issues with soy as well-- you might want to consider supplementing him with nutramigen or alimentum instead.

  •  i had a similar thing with my 4 month old ( first hive outbreak 5 days after 3 month shots) went to a pedi allergist, got skin testing, he tested positive for milk,tree nut, peanut, and egg. my lo is EBF so I changed my diet and he hasn't had a single hive since. We had to wait 3 weeks for our consultation with the allergist and he was randomly breaking out during that time. I would consider getting little one tested.

    In 6 months (LO will be 10 months) we will get blood testing.
