Rashes (mild), mild diarrhoea During the first try, give only a tiny bit of fully cooked egg yolk. Then if there’s no reaction, you can give a little more during the next meal. The severe reaction usually doesn’t come the first time. It comes the second time onwards, so look out for that. If there’s mild reaction, stop giving the food. Keep baby hydrated (if there’s diarrhoea). Try again in a tiny amount maybe about a week later. (Don’t intro other new foods). If you keep giving tiny amounts, baby should hopefully build a tolerance. But if the reaction is more serious, (eye swelling, breathing difficulties, severe diarrhoea and unable to hydrate well, severe rashes, go to the hospital. I wouldn’t self medicate:)
