My nephew just had his first birthday party Saturday, his birthday was actually the Thursday before. So of course we let him tear apart his cake and get it all over him. He ate and seemed happy, never seemed distressed. His mom and I got him in the sink and started cleaning him and his face and chest was fire engine red!! I'm even not exaggerating, it almost looked like a really bad sun burn. We washed him good and dried him off and you could tell where it was red it had bumps which looked kind of like hives. But my nephew wasn't scratching, never cried, never seemed in distress. He was actually getting mad at us for making him sit still to look at him. He was laughing and running around, it didn't seem to bother him but it definitely scared us! After about 30 minutes to an hour it was gone. His cake was a white cake with blue and yellow icing. His mom said he had had a chocolate cake Thursday on his actual birthday and he did the same thing but it wasn't as bad. Anyone have any idea what this might be?View Thread
