A week ago my wife brought our son in our neighbor’s house for a dinner there. Several minutes after, she returned holding our son with a huge swollen upper lip that looks like he was hit by a jab from a boxing match. My wife rushes back home to get the antihistamine of our son so he could take them right away before any further complications arise.
She then further narrated that our son was sitting on her lap while she was eating dinner. She was guessing that he might touched one of those foods that was in her plate that he eventually brushed on his upper lip. We have seen him several times already with a bout of allergic reactions to some foods yet this one is different from the rest since it is only his upper lip that was affected and blown up that big.
Although we are too careful right now with the foods that he is eating and this one was the first after a long while. And she suspects that he must have touched the fresh water fish called Tilapia (from one of those cichlid families). We have seen him before ate the same kind of fish and immediately had patches of rashes over his face and from then on we knew that he is allergic to Tilapia yet he is still eating fish but of different specie. However, I cannot still rule out that he’s only allergic to fresh water fish until he is exposed to other species and we will be doing that when he is able to talk to us already.
