Is there a sign/feeling that you\'ve eaten a peanut?
I have two adult friends with peanut allergies and both have told me that as soon as food that has come in contact or has peanuts in it enters his/her mouth, he/she knows it. Both spit the food out and drink lots of water. Both have never had to use the EPI pen.
As a parent of a child with a peanut allergy, I would like to know if this is common or not. If it is, I will talk to my son (6) about this so he can keep it in mind. When he had his 1st and only reaction, he could not swallow the peanut he told me and I thought that he had just not chewed it enough. (He was only 4 at the time) Maybe this is the sign that he will get. Before eating the M & M peanut that one time, he had never wanted or liked the smell of any peanut products.
