Ki is allergic to Salicylic Acid and there is no way I am every giving him any type of honey again after he collapsed barely breathing and got hives all around his mouth. (and I usuallly do buy local honey).I have had many people tell me to try giving it to him again becuase honey is good for allergies and ashtma. And it is for most people,

That's unusual. My wife's allergist "prescribed" honey to reduce her
symptoms. Were you using local raw honey, or processed commercial
honey?  All the beneficial stuff gets cooked out of the commercially
produced stuff.  For any benefit, you have to use raw honey made by
local bees (usually best found at Farmers' Markets).  Of course, it's
probably too late for this advice, since I know that if my daughter
had a bad reaction twice, I sure as hell wouldn't try again...  But
just in case your story scares anybody else off honey, maybe they'll
try it Pooh Bear's way first.
