Uh oh!

So much for all my boasting about my kids not being allergic to anything. Today Aidan was diving head first into a watermelon when what should my wondering eyes should appear? A rash and whelps all over where the juice had touched his skin, which was everywhere, obviously. 

Kinda freaked me out. I can only assume he's somewhat allergic to watermelon now. And he's pissed about it! He spent a good portion of an hour stomping around, arms folded over his chest, yelling, "Fine! I guess I won't EVER get any more watermelon! You guys are mean to me!" 

Yeah, we suck, not wanting to risk your throat closing up and you suffocating, punk. But you know so much better than us so go ahead, have a bite...

ya know what's weird, is that when my son eats watermelon he gets a red rash on his face only where the watermelon was. He has no other symptoms except for that. I had the same reaction as you the first time, but other than the red face he's fine. You could always have him tested too just to make sure.
