I have been struggling with my child's pediatrician for a year now and hope someone has some experience or advice to help me. My daughter gets a reaction from chocolate, always has, even when I nursed her. She vomits or gets horrible diarrhea for the next 24 hours or so and gets an instant diaper rash that lasts with the diarrhea. With just diarrhea alone I would say well, she probably has an intolerance and avoid chocolate but the terrible diaper rash has me questioning this. The pediatrician is really no help. She said well treat it like an allergy and try giving her some when she's 5 ( she's 2). They won't refer me to an allergist an say that peds has no testing available.

My question I guess is can these symptoms be an allergy? I'm just not sure how concerned to be over this. Maybe I am overreacting.

Daughter (2) cocoa/cacao allergy, corn intolerance
Daughter (6) apple and egg white allergy
Daughter (10) tree nuts
Daughter (12) benzalkonium Chloride

Do they give you a reason for not referring to an allergist? Maybe keep a food dairy to see if there is a connection with other foods.
