My 15 month-old son recently broke out in a rash covering his body. The only thing we could think of that was different, was that his daddy had been cutting hickory wood earlier in the day and might have had some sawdust on his clothes when he picked him up. His allergy specialist ran some tests, but failed to test for hard wood or hickory. Now, after playing with his daddy's shoes, he has the rash on his hands only. Has anyone heard of being allergic to hickory? We use the wood in our smoker and I'm afraid to feed him any meat that we have smoked in it. Should I be concerned about the smoke or just the sawdust? Any suggestions would be appriciated greatly.
