Twenty month old Imogen Elliot is allergic to most things under the sun. It appears to be a mysterious illness due to which she can get really sick with red sores and itching even with exposure to the sun or grass. Plastic and animal fur are again dangerous for the little one.

She was found to be allergic to most foods and survives on a daily diet of gluten-free fish fingers. A sudden life threatening allergy after consuming tuna fish was a wake up call to  little Imogen's parents, and the toddler survived only due to timely medical assistance.

"Some children can build up tolerance to foods but the more exposure Imogen has, the worse her reactions get", said the child's mother.

The baby can only stay in the sun for a few minutes. Their home is special with fabrics and furniture to suit Imogen. The parents are just hoping the child grows out of these allergies and is able to live life normally.
