Just had lunch at Carluccio's. Zac had the GF pasta and a dairy free sauce, but within minutes of leaving he was scratching all over. No noticeable rash, no redness at least. Slight pin pricks and lumpiness under the skin, particularly on his face and arms.
Tummy didn't bloat though which is his usual reaction.
Zac has not been diagnosed with CD but this kind of reaction seems a bit extreme and immediate for an intolerance. If it was dairy he would have been sick, I tasted the sauce, and am very sensitive myself and couldn't detect any.
Only other thing I can think of is the fruit salad! He has never eaten mango and melon before. He has had all the other fruits that were in, but with no side effects.
Am thinking cross contamination? Any ideas? Similar experiences?
