My son is allergic to red dye. It took a long time to figure out what he was allergic to. He would get hives and have vomiting. It was hard to link it to a particular food. He is allergic to red grapes as well. Some red dyes are derived from red grapes.


I am allergic to red dyes. I break out all over my arms and become red. My heart feels like its going to pump out of my body. I have been like this since age 5. If your child is having these symptons I would consult a doctor. I will not drink any Kool-Aids or eat anything with a large amount of dye. It makes me feel very weird.

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
