allergy to strawberry jam ingredient??

I have a son who just ate strawberry jam this morning. He started developing a rash around his mouth.

But he does eat raw strawberries with no problems. So I'm ruling out strawberries for now.

Does anyone have a suggestion on a common ingredient in strawberry jam that could cause an allergic reaction?

We'd have to know what the label says the ingredients are before we could venture a guess. Did anyone else eat the jam? How old was it?

You know, when my brother was a toddler, tomato sauce gave him a rash, but not tomatoes! We figured it was probably the more concentrated acid. He eventually grew out of it.

Actually, it was homemade jam apparently. I will be finding out what ingredients (and the age of the jam) our friend used in a day or two.

Everyone in our family ate it, but only the little one had a reaction.

Thanks for the replies.

So the ingredients were strawberries, sugar and Certo! At this point
I'm guessing it is the Certo then (or an ingredient in Certo).

Thanks for the replies anyways.
