I do not have a peanut allergy but am a Children's Ward sister and Nurse Teacher in England. We use arachis Oil
regularly in order to administer a drug rectally called Paraldehyde, which is used to stop children
Do you have any information regarding the incidence of allergic responses to this oil in individuals with
peanut/nut allergy or an alternative oil. Any information would be gratefully recieved.
