In Reply to: red food dyes and possible allergies posted by c hammon on October 10, 1999 at 09:46:39:

: A friend of mine has a son that is almost seven (7) years old. He is very active, and some would even say he is hyper.
: My friend already this school year, was asked to come in and talk with the child's teacher and school principle. Their discussion
: included an idea that he may or may not have an allergy to food dyes. Is this hyperness of a child a sympton of a food dye allergy? Or perhaps
: is his diet of sugars, and sweetened cereals the main factor?

: Would a process of elimination each week be a place to start? (ie... remove from his diet, all sugared cereals one week, and log the results if any, and
: continue with another food or drink that may or may not have these food dyes.)
I would like to tell you about the experience I had with my son when he was 4 years. He broke out in a rash allover his body , hence hives. With the doctor's guidance we eleminated all the obvious foods, dairy products,eggs nuts and animals, etc. The only thing we came up with was the food dyes in a drink he was consuming daily which was Tang. When we discontinued the drink and any food that might have red or yellow food dyes , it disappeared. The dyes seem to be in everything..hot dogs, american cheese, cereals, jello , candy etc. He's fine now. He grew out of it. He was four at the time, he is now 27. I hope this helps someone.
