Lip swelling
An_250066 posted:

My daughter broke out in hives the other day when eating steak that she always eats. We used a different marinade (mesquite) this time so we figured that must be it. She was give benedryl and the hives went away.

Now last night her upper lip swelled up so much that she had to stay home from school. She had a taco last night but had also eaten 1 the other night. I did add some taco sauce to it this time. She compared the mesquite & taco sauce label and says there's paprika in both.

Is this possible that she's had an allergic reaction to the paprika both times but with different symptoms?

Thanks for any help.
