    It so hard to tell with food allergies.  It could be anything from the very red cheeks and the throwing up to hyperactivity and gas or bloating.  Its worth looking into.

    It's possible.  However, it could just be a coincidence.

    I'm pretty sure that if it's a true allergy that there would be a skin reaction - so if you put a little dab on his skin it would react.  It's definitely worth looking further into regardless.

    I think I would consult with a doctor to be sure.  There are so many different reactions with food allergies.

    Hmmm I would talk to the doctor.  There are different ways allergies effect people.  I break out in severe rash and get super itchy.

    Is this his first time eating spaghetti?  Did you have sauce on the noodles?

    DD1 is allergic to tomato sauce.  It's too acidic for her.  Check with your pediatrician.

    I agree.  And keep a record of exactly what happened, when it happened, what he hate, what was in it, and if it happens again do the same.

    This. With dd's soybean allergy her face swelled and turned red and she got horrible diarrhea. We spoke to the pedi who confirmed the allergy. Now if she gets anything with soybean in it by accident her skin turns red wherever it touches her.
