Airborne Reaction or Touch?
My husband bought me a P.B. Reese Cup as a treat on our anniversary. We were going to eat it after my p.a. child went to bed. We forgot about it and the next day I did something stupid! I ate it while she was outside, being careful trying to not touch the inside of the wrapper, even washed my hands several times, and used hand sanitizer. She came inside about 1 1/2 hrs. later and immediately started sneezing (like 20 times). She had to sit down because she was sneezing so hard. I gave her Bendryl and even had to repeat the dose. Just a warning! I consider myself very educated about p.a. but still did something stupid!
