:My son is allergic to milk protein, citrus fruit , tomato, and red 40. He was diagnosed with asthma and eczema at six months, these symptoms dissappeared when I took him off dairy and citrus. I confirmed the allergies by having him tested. He is now three and if he eats food with red 40, his behavior becomes violent or bizarre and he complains of a headache. I am having him tested for other chemical sensitivities that were not included in the original tests. I hear that yellow is also a common trigger.Good Luck, jennifer.
