Does Anyone Have A Reaction To The Food That Causes A Reaction Hours After Ingesting The Particular Food?

Does Anyone Have A Reaction To The Food That Causes A Reaction Hours After Ingesting The Particular Food?

I have a severe tree nut allergy, and I tried the challenge approach in the allergist's office. After 5 hours I ingested one whole almond, but because I did not show any symptoms in the office he told me I could eat almonds (ha, ha). I didn't have a reaction until 2 hours later. My tongue began swelling. Needless to say, I stay away from all tree nuts!

Hi, I'm Not Sure If I Belong Here Or Not, You See I Don't Have Allergies Nor Does My Child. My Nephew Has Nut Allergies.

I keep all nut products up from where he can reach them, however that still makes me nervous when he comes over. I worry that maybe he might touch something that does have nuts and I just didn't know. Another question I have is at what age should they know when to ask about nuts in food or before they touch food with nuts in them? If I should not be on this site just calmly let me know and I will… read more

Parents Of Young Children With Extreme Allergies, Have Any Of You Felt Comfortable Sending Your Child To Preschool?

My daughter will be 3 in December and we are considering starting her in preschool this January. She has extreme allergies to all dairy, peanuts, all tree nuts, eggs and sesame.

If she didn't have allergies… read more
