I have spoon fed LO bananas at least 10 times and he has never had a reaction. Today I gave him some chunks of banana to let him try to feed himself. Basically he just made a mess and his arms got covered in banana slime! When I went to wipe him off, I noticed his arms were covered in hives where the banana had been on his skin. I called our ped and she said to take him to the ER, but by the time we go there the hives were gone so DH (who is also a doctor) looked at him and said he was fine and the ped in the ER said not to worry either. Anyone else have experience with this? I just think its odd tha he had a contact reaction but has no issues eating bananas.
