In Reply to: Re: Red food dye, lactose & preservative intolerance in 2 yr old posted by jennifer on March 18, 2000 at 22:41:14:

Thank you for your responses! My daughter has the aggressive behavior you note when she gets anything with red 40 in it too, she also gets extremely hyper and uncontrollable. Yes, I have heard yellow dye is a common companion to red dye intolerance, however, she doesn't appear to have it. I find it amazing what foods contain red dyes - things that you would never think of (white icing, vanilla icecream). I am learning to cope and have an allergist appointment for her in April (1st available). Any other advise or comments please feel free to contact me & thanks again.

: :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.
