Can Prometrium During Pregnancy Cause Peanut Allergy?

Can Prometrium During Pregnancy Cause Peanut Allergy?

I read today that prometrium has peanut oil in it. I read it in an article that was listing medications to stay away from if you have a peanut allergy.

Well I took prometrium during most of my pregnancy with my daughter. In November my daughter tested positive for a peanut allergy. Now I'm wondering if there is a link between the two.

Anyone else take this medication and now your child has a peanut allergy? Or have you heard about this before?

Does Having A Peanut Allergy Mean That You Will Also Be Allergic To Tree Nuts.

My daughter had an allergy test done which came up positive for eggs, milk, soy, dust mites, dander, mould, grass, wheat and her highest being peanuts. So I just want to find out if tree nuts will also affect her since it was not specifically mentioned on her allergy test results.

How Accurate Are SPTs?

How Accurate Are SPTs?

I was diagnosed with a peanut allergy when I was about 18 months old. My mom gave me peanut butter on crackers, but I didn't eat the snack, I just played with it and broke out in hives. She gave me a bath and the hives went away. I had a skin prick test when I was about 3 that confirmed a peanut allergy. I've never had a reaction to any food since, but I've also avoided all peanuts and nuts. I will usually eat food that says "May Contain Peanuts" on the label. I've never had an itchy mouth… read more

Blood tests are not accurate at all. Skin tests tend to be better indicators. But the best are oral food challenges, which I was freaked out to do. However, I did it - and am so glad I did. I know I… read more

Does Anyone Have Resources To Find Nut Products Without Cross-contamination From Other Nuts?

Does Anyone Have Resources To Find Nut Products Without Cross-contamination From Other Nuts?

My child has a peanut allergy and is allergic to certain tree nuts. I would like to use almonds, walnuts, and pecans in cooking/baking and in nut-butter form, but I am having a hard time finding products which are not contaminated with peanuts or other tree nuts. Does anyone know where to find such products?

Thanks!

Introducing Peanuts

Introducing Peanuts

Our pediatrician wants me to introduce my 5 month old to peanuts. She said that they have been informed from the Medical Board with scientific studies that actually introducing known food allergens to a baby earlier in life while their immune system is still developing has shown to greatly reduce the chances of developing that particular allergy since their bodies learn that it's "normal" and not something foreign. I'm all for this because she showed me the information and it does make sense. My… read more

Wheat Allergy - False Positive Chances?

Wheat Allergy - False Positive Chances?

Saw a comment on a group saying something like "after a (severe) allergic reaction ige levels go up a lot and this takes 3 months to clear. If tests are done within 3 months of a reaction specific ige tests and/or skin prick test have a higher chance of false positives"
Is the above true? I can’t find anything supporting this on the internet
Want to check on wheat allergy in particular where an infant 9 months has a 7mm in skin prick (positive control value was 8 for histamine on skin prick… read more
