8 month old child, tried creamed corn for the first time, red spots on face. Allergic reaction?

my son is turning eight months old...last night we tried creamed corn for the first time from a can for a table food. within a 1/2 hour, we noticed little red dots underneath the skin on his face . He doesn t have any other symptoms. They spots are still there today. Could this be an allergic reaction and should we call the doctor?

Watch particularly for swelling of the lips, eyelids, hands, feet,rapid breathing or breathing difficulty.They usually develop within a few minutes of ingestion of the Allergen( Offending food), but again the 2nd or subsequent episodes may be either more extensive or quicker to occur.Seek Medical help of any of these signs. In the future,after consulting your Doctor & ensuring that Emergency help is at hand, try only one of the contents,i.e. separately, one at a time, keeping an anti-allergic Syrup , like Cetrizine at hand.
