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!

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.

If I should not be on this site just calmly let me know and I will get off. Thank you
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. Even secondhand touch will give her a reaction. If a kid eats any of those foods and doesn't wash up after, then touches an object my daughter will have a reaction if she touches that object next. If she didn't have allergies I would be excited for her to start preschool, but I'm not sure its worth the risk at this age.
Who has this? Finally requested doctors office blood testing for Lymes. Not sure of that result as it is not available or wasn't ordered however, I tested positive for Alpha Gal. What guidance were you advised besides avoiding Beef Pork and Lamb? Realize this also includes No meats from any hoofed animals including wild game. New journey. Continue eating Medeterrian diet-lifestyle for (our) health issues and easiest for two retirees.
