: my daughter had a yellow sucker yesterday and within a half an hour had hives all over her body. was it the yellow dye or the fact that it was a sugar free sucker.
I have had allergic reactions to a yellow colouring: Annatto. I'm in Britain so it might be called something different, or have a number, where you are. I heard that this colouring derives from Almonds, and I'm allergic to nuts. It's found in coloured cheese, spreads and sometimes crisps (chips). Is your daughter allergic to nuts?
