I don't know if this is even possible, please help!!! I was feeding my infant bananas for the first time and I know that I'm allergic to them. I was very careful not to touch them, even wore gloves while feeding them to her. I've had reactions to bananas before and I know what to look for and I'm having all the syptoms of an allergic reaction. My question is Can have a reaction by smelling the food? If anyone has any insight into this please let me know. Thank you!!!!
I have heard that happen from peanut dust.... and like Heather said (my name is Heather too lol) I have never heard it happen with bananas. Before you feed it to her again, I would consult a doctor....can't hurt right?
Thank you all for your replies! I greatly appreciate them :-) I did speak with her pediatrician and he said that if I'm having a reaction then I don't have to feed them to her. "She's tried them and that's good enough" were his words. I'm feeling better today but it definitely affected me for the last couple of days. Just now feeling better after 3 days of pure allergic reaction hell. Again, thank you all and have a wonderful day!!!!!
