I don't know that I would consider the diaper blowout to be a reaction. Eating anything has a tendency (b/c of the "gastrocolic reflex") to move your colon along, so it's common to have a BM after eating.

But the rash is a possibility ... I think my JB's bms after applesauce tend to be a little more irritating to her butt. I don't know that it's an actual allergy, though.

A true allergic rash you'd expect to be more widespread, too.

But you could try mango again and see if it happens again. Obviously you wouldn't want to rechallenge after a life-threatening reaction, but for a rash, it'd probably be fine to retry.

I'm not sure of the acidity in mango's but my dd gets a rash on her face after eating tomatoes and when I asked her ped about it he said it's the acidity that does it, and can sometimes cause a rash on the rear too.. maybe it's that?
