In brief: Hives, vomiting, etc

Allergy to oats is rare, but certainly possible.
Food allergies cause similar symptoms, so you should watch for hives, vomiting, difficulty breathing, lip swelling and itching in the mouth. An allergist can skin test for oat or a blood test (rast-type) can be done.

In brief: Many

Symptoms range from itchy mouth, gastrointestinal upset, vomiting, itchy hives, nasal congestion to anaphylaxis.
Although peanut allergy is common affecting probably 1% of the population, oat allergy is rare. If your child has anaphylaxis , be sure to have an Epinephrine kit (2 pack) on hand. You should get him to see an allergist since he likely has allergic rhinitis, eczema, or asthma as well.
