We sort of just found this out.I heated up some steamed veggies and used 2 T of coconut oil. An hour later, my daughter broke out in hives. She get nauseaus if she drinks a pina colada or pina colada type drink, gets itchy with coconut water, and once at a Thai restaurant, approx.1 year ago, her tongue swelled up, we know now it must have been the fried rice (made with coconut milk). Yet, she can eat coconut flakes on cookies with no problems.

If she can eat coconut flakes, then coconut is not the problem. The culprit is likely something else. Notice that every time she has a reaction, it's not a coconut product by itself, but rather mixed with something else: 1 - "steamed veggies and used 2 T of coconut oil", what's in the steamed veggies? 2 - "pina colada type drink, gets itchy with coconut water", what else is in the piña-colada-type drink? 3 - "once at a Thai restaurant...fried rice", maybe the Thai restaurant used other ingredients in the fried rice which caused the reaction. Give her a little bit of coconut oil or water by itself (not mixed with veggies or other things) and see if there is a reaction, only then can you be 100% sure.
