According to theCalgary Allergy Network, eggplant is part of the nightshade family. I wouldn't necessarily avoid foods that are not causing a reaction (a restricted diet is dificult enough) but foods to concider taking with caution are:
Nightshade: Brinjal, Cayenne, Capsicum, Eggplant, Ground Cherry, Banana Pepper, Bell Pepper, Chili Pepper, Green Pepper, Red Pepper, Sweet Pepper, Paprika, Pimento, Potato, Tabasco, Thorn Apple, Tobacco, Tomato. ... ood_Family

Daughter: asthma, allergies to egg, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, most legumes (not soy and green beans) & penicillin. Developing hayfever type allergies.
Husband: no allergies
Me: Oral Allergy Syndrome, Allergic to Birch trees

Our son has eaten a tiny bit of tomato sauce before, it wasn't his favorite but no reaction. Yesterday he very much wanted a piece of tomato and after him grunting and reaching for it I finally gave him very little piece to try. Instantly red rash and hives neck/chest/ and his mouth went all red in a ring about it. Is anyone else allergic to the raw form of tomatoes but not cooked?
If I'd realized that there was a chance he'd react to them raw I'd have never given it to him. I feel like daily we are learning something new and as much as we try to stick to what he can eat it is truly by accident we are discovering more and more allergies.
The eggplant he reacted to was cooked and he's eaten a potato chip once without reaction ( I assume a potato chip is considered cooked). Not that anyone would want to eat a raw potato but is there a possibility he'd react to them raw?
I can tell you one thing, I'm never trying peppers with this boy!!!!
Back to the Dr. next week!!

Hi BC2007

Yes I have an allergy to raw tomato but can eat them cooked without any reaction. Raw ones make my eyeballs itch and swell which is very uncomfortable.
