Last Sunday we had scrambled eggs for lunch. (I really needed to get to the grocery store!)
We gave Caroline some eggs, too. Always amused by her shoveling fistfuls of food into her mouth and making a huge mess, I, of course, picked up the camera to document. I laughed as she rubbed the egg all over her.
I got Kate down for her nap. When I came back down, Nick was starting to get Caroline out of her high chair. I got an urgent call over...
Yup. Those are hives.
*These are not supposed to be "pretty" pictures. I underexposed them to be sure we could see the bumps!*
I didn't freak out like I (kinda) did with Kate when she was 5 months. I knew just what to do this time...old pro! I had to guess on the amount of Benadryl, but it did the trick. It didn't take long before the hives started to disappear. Poor baby, though. She had it all around her eye, and you could tell it was itching like crazy.
We cleared out the sink to give her a quick bath to get all of the egg completely off of her skin.
While I started on my to-do list, Nick kept an eye on her for a little while longer before putting her down for her nap. Her breathing seemed fine, thankfully!
We're thankful it didn't seem very severe, and I'm very thankful that Nick was home at the time. It doesn't seem like she'll need an Epipen; for now we'll just stay away from egg and keep the Benadryl stocked!
