Could an allergy to food suddenly appear?

Yesterday, Vera, suddenly developed these welts all over her body When I googled it, they look like hives. I got her some benadryl and some caladryl lotion lastnight and it helped. This morning, she woke up and she seems better, the welts were going away....she had breakfast and she seems to be developing more on her right thigh, left hip and some more on her right arm The only thing she had was milk and cereal so far. My question, can a milk allergy start suddenly???

I'm pretty sure it's possible, Alex.
I ate seafood with no problem at all and suddenly when I was about 5 years old I started reacting with hives and vomiting.

is it the same cereal or a new one?

same stuff she's had before. And this started yesterday, she didn't have cereal in the a.m. I made her a hard boiled egg, bagel and yogurt. But for lunch, hubs made her pb&j sandwich and it was a different pb than what we usually use but she had it earlier in the week.

Also, last Monday she was home sick, vomiting. My mom said it could just be the illness leaving her body but how likely is it that it would be leaving her body nearly a week later?

And, on Friday night she decided to put the Moxie girl hair glitter stuff on her cheek They did it right before bed and I didn't know about it until yesterday a.m. because hubs put them to bed after they had done that.

Yes. Allergies can pop up anytime. They can also go away with time too. Hives are pretty serious, so I would take her to an allergist if they persist. My mom has really bad hives, it's quite scary! It very well could be the glitter too. My daughter had a pretty bad rash on her face for awhile until I figured out it was from the scrubbing bubbles cleaner I used on her bathtub I felt so bad! Now I only use soft scrub, and she's fine.

yes! and they go away suddenly too. i drank milk when i was old enough to (not sure how old but i dont think i was breast fed for long said my mom) but then at a certain age (me thinks 5ish), i threw up everytime i drank it... but then at some other age (no estimate for this one), i was totally fine. and now i can drink it, but too much leads to lactose intolerance (sorry tmi!)

i was also never allergic to cats, dogs, hazelnuts, have hay fever (until 2 years ago), blossoming fruits or something (apples, pears, bananas, apricots, peaches etc...) when i was younger, but now i am. which really sucks for me because i loved eating that stuff.


i suggest taking your daughter to take an allergy test (like stacie said) or just to see a doctor (if in case it is just illness and not an allergy)

^ My dad's GF (50-something) has, in the last year, developed a nut allergy and an allergy to stone fruits (believe that's what she said, anything with a pit). Hers isn't TOO bad, though, she can still be around peanut butter & touch it, as with baking. Just can't EAT the stuff.

Well, the welts are gone now...I am thinking it might be related to the banana bread she ate. She had it both days. My husband made one with/without walnuts but the one without walnuts did come into contact with the nuts

Thanks for the responses. I wish kids came with instructions (I'm kidding)

^ that makes more sense than a milk allergy to be honest.
most milk allergies will present in gastrointestinal problems rather than hives or welts (although it is possible to have hives from milk allergy...just more rare).

i too wish children came with instruction manuals...and i'm not so sure i'm kidding.

I randomly broke out with hives last year at 26 for the first time and I have no idea what caused them. They covered my entire body and were huge. Benadryl helped and a few days later they went away. I still have no idea what happened.

^^ Me either!! And then you just upgrade your manual as needed, kinda like software for your computer!!

It might be the nuts she's allergic too... Just be aware that sometimes when people are allergic to one type of nut they can be to others as well!

It might be worth taking her to an allergist to find out for sure and to gauge the severity of the allergy. She might get hives but the next time she could have a more serious reaction

Hope V is feeling better today! Allergies actually develop after some type of exposure. My cousin (who's 34) just recently found out he's allergic to lobster/seafood. NEVER had a prob w/ it before. He ate some awhile ago and his mouth felt a little tingly and the next time he ate it, his mouth/lips became swollen and tingly. I think he went in to the ER too...

one thing after another in this house...I feel like putting everyone in a bubble.

Fletch spiked a fever today of 104 My girls have NEVER had such a high fever so we just spent the past 3 hours in the ER

Plus, Vera's eyes got all puffy after she was playing for a little while. The nurse called back from the base clinic and said that she could be having a reaction to new laundry detergent And I did actually switch detergents this past week. If i remember correctly I was using Gain and I switched to Tide about a week ago. It was just her eyes that got puffy and then it went down.

Last week, at his 9 month well baby, Dr said Fletch looked like he was getting an ear infection but refused to give him medicine because he's going to be seen at St. Jude and he wanted him to go in with a clean slate (including no immunizations either) So, the ER Doctor thinks the fever was caused by an untreated ear infection and basically gave me the 3rd degree about why I didn't give him antibiotics...even though it was the ass of a dr on base that told me he will not prescribe antibiotics. Fletch has his first appointment with an LCH specialist on Jan 4th....please pray that we get some good news.
