How Do \"Additional Reactions\" Happen?
I have been reading messages from various places in the topics and I read how often your children have reactions i.e. 3 times in a year and half. My topic question is "how" has the additional contact with peanuts happened after you first learned of the allergy. My son has had only one severe reaction mainly because I am a stay-at-home mommy and I just recently let go enough to have a babysitter come in our home - haven't had courage to leave him outside my home with babysitter. He is 2 1/2 and enrolled for preschool this fall, peanut free facility. I realize "peanut free" can be misleading. What should I be aware of and maybe prevent happening from your experiences?
