Surprise Peanut Allergy at age 30???
So my husband has been dealing with Eosinophilic Esophagitis for a couple years and finally got food skin-tested this week (it's currently thought EE is due to food allergies)
So he had a 4+ reaction to peanuts!! (and sunflower)
TOTAL surprise. He has eaten peanuts infrequently throughout his life with no observable reaction.
Has anyone ever heard of this happening? It seems his body has only manifested the allergy through the EE or else the skin test is totally not applicable. I've heard of that, but a 4+?? Crazy!
He's joking now that he and our daughter are "peanut-free buddies". She's so excited of course (she's 3 LOL)
