My 16 yr old daughter has been diagnosed with a sulphite allergy. I have been all over the internet for information and have found some very useful information. The allergist gave us a very condensed version of dont eat foods so when that didnt really help much I started my own research. We dont eat out because of lack of control of what is cooked and spend HOURS at the grocery store reading labels. Yet it still sneaks in on us and her reactions are awful. Hours of her body trying to purge its self and hives. Benadryl helps but only when she finally stops vomiting but then she has terrible headaches and constantly fidgets(that gives me a headache). The latest thing that set her off seems to be fresh strawberries. Does anyone have information on this? I cant find anything on it. This is really hard on her and just puts me in tears because there is nothing I can do to help her. And like most of the other posts I have read on here her Dr has no clue about it. Said she is the first patient she has ever had with it.
