Back from allergist
We just got back from my sons first allergy testing. Turns out he is allergic not only to peanuts (3.91) but walnuts (3.38) as well. He may be allergic to hazelnuts but they are rechecking to make sure if it was the pollen or the nut it came out 0.187.
He is also allergic to Oranges of all things! String beans and Green peas. All these we have to aviod completly.
He is allergic to potatoes, shell fish, white fish, tomatoes, corn, soybeans, horses, cats, orchard grass, dust mites and tree pollens. She said to take them out of his diet for 3 weeks then introduce one at a time again. I would have never known. He has a stuffy nose all the time and very dry skin. Well, now I know how hard it is for multiple allergic people to cope. That doesn't leave a whole lot for a 14 yr old boy to eat!
I also asked her the name of the vaacine for anaphalaxis and it IS Zoliar but will only be available for anaphalic people.
He isnt allergic to cashews or almonds, or Brazil nuts. I still am scared to let him eat these even though his scores were <0.10!
He is also very reluctant to try them either~
