Go to ER if: YOu are having problem breathing or choking. The reason why you could have tolerated ketchup or tomato sauce on pizza is likely due to alternation of the tomato allergen from cooking. The current problem might have been from partially cooked or raw tomato. It will be best for you to consult an allergist before ever touching tomato product again because the next reaction can be deadly. ...Read more

Possible: Even though allergic reaction to food (aside from swelling) does not usually last for more than a few hours, I recommend that tomato be avoided until cleared by an allergist. Do note that there are other ingredients in pizza aside from tomato. ...Read more

Saw tomato in stool few weeks ago, stopped eating tomatoes and didn't see it again. Had a very tomato dish and saw red in poop again. Is that normal?

Saw tomato in stool few weeks ago, stopped eating tomatoes and didn't see it again. Had a very tomato dish and saw red in poop again. Is that normal?

Depends on digestion: Tomatoes have some insoluble fiber, which would naturally be excreted in feces, but would usually be processed enough to not be recognizable in feces, except for the skins, unless there is rapid transit like diarrhea. Corn has 5 g of fiber in 1/2 cup and it is very common to see kernals in stool. A cooked tomato has about 1 g of fiber. Stool can be tested for blood to eliminate that concern. ...Read more

Not likely: Since your reportedly normal scope 2 yrs ago. Probably OK to watch for now and see if same happens again in next couple months. But, it is hard to put a price tag on peace of mind of normal scope now if you check again. You could ask person who did your last scope what they advise. There is no single right answer now, but what makes most sense to you now. ...Read more

My boyfriend gets blood in his stool after eating tomato based foods such as spaghetti sauce or tomato soup. Is there anything that can be done?

Food in stool: Boyfriend is likely seeing red from the tomato sauce and tomato bits that are in the stool. If it occurs when he is not having spaghetti sauce and tomatoes then he should see a doctor and check it out. If it is inside the stool then it is probably bleeding from the intestine. If blood is outside the stool and around it is likely from hemorrhoids. Ask pharmacist for card to test stool for blood. ...Read more
