Welcome babytomatoallergy!

My kiddoes had issues with acidic foods on the skin around their faces, nothing as severe as what youíve described. That said, my older son had a tremendous eczema exacerbation if I ate tomato while I was still breastfeeding, so I donít doubt that it can cause problems.

As Rebekahc indicated in the other thread, I would definitely avoid all tomato for now, and contact your pediatrician before the next checkup. Ranch dressing, soy-based sauces are all good alternatives. Maybe even yogurt for dipping if your kiddo likes it.

Good luck and keep us posted.

I have not yet, no, but other acidic foods do not bother him at all; he's never had an issue with anything other than tomato products. He's actually rather fond of spicy food and ingredients like chili powder, mustard, etc., and likes lemon juice a lot, weirdly; I thought of the sensitive skin first and assumed it was fine, and that's why we kept feeding him tomato sauce after the first couple of times he got a rash. I made a post on the other allergens part of the forum explaining a bit more. We're going to talk to his doctor about it next month, but given how my own allergies worsened quickly with exposure as a child I worried enough I wanted to seek out advice from other adults with allergies, esp. non-nut allergies, in advance of that appointment.

Welcome! We are glad you are here. This is a great place and the people here are incredible and full of information.

What causes you to think your babe may have a Ďmildí tomato allergy? Many babies and toddlers have sensitive skin that can be irritated by highly acidic foods like tomato, causing a rash wherever the acidic food touches, especially the mouth. Have you ruled this out with your doctor or allergist?

New here and trying to figure out the board. Glad to have this resource. I have several allergies (peanut + some treenuts anaphylactic) and believe my toddler likely has a ?mild? tomato allergy as well.

Hi, I'm Walrus.  I have had allergies since I was a kid but I'm not sure how severe they are anymore because I've been so good at avoidance for so long it just doesn't come up until recently as my baby starts eating more solid foods and running into allergens of mine that I struggle to cook for him.  Glad to find a resource like this.

Stormspotter, I live in a part of the country where tornadoes are pretty rare, but several years ago our area had two microbursts in one summer; we took a direct hit from the first one. What an experience!

That sounds really exciting! Iíve experienced several nearby tornados and find them fascinating.
