Mild Reactions, Then Ana Reactions?
I am just curious about people's reactions becoming more severe with each exposure. I have two friends I have made through my son's school. They both have children who have had reactions to PB, but both moms call it a "mild" reaction. One mom continues to feed her son PB even though his eczema gets worse and he sometimes has the hives. Neither carry EPI regularly.
I have mentioned several times that each exposure could cause a more severe reaction.
So, my question is...has anyone experienced mild symptoms initially, but had reactions escalate over time to ana shock?
My son had one severe ana reaction, so I don't have first hand experience with this.
