What can be done to make schools take allergies more seriously?

What can be done to make schools take allergies more seriously?

My daughter already did a presentation at school about her allergies two years ago, but many kids and now some teachers are ignoring and even belittling them. And now she heard that some kids don't believe they are real and she is afraid they might try to expose her to see what happens. She is airborne to nuts and peanuts and has had to leave several events this year because people brought them. The school then chose a class trip to a baseball park… read more

Fragrance allergies cause me severe migraines

Fragrance allergies cause me severe migraines

Baked goods with egg

Baked goods with egg

My son (12 months) has a documented egg allergy. He has had hives a few times, always from eating or touching scrambled eggs. I did give him baked goods before we knew and he didn't get hives. His allergist said he "probably" can have eggs in baked goods as long as they're baked 350+ for at least 20 minutes.

My question is, how would I know if it was giving him a mild reaction? Just because he didn't get hives doesn't mean his tummy doesn't hurt, right?!

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.
