PA suffer found also to be allergic to Vanilla
Three years ago we found out my son is allergic to peanuts and walnuts. Recently I had him retested for those as well as other nuts and found he is allergic to all nuts he was tested for. They are Peanuts, Walnuts, Almonds,Pecans, Hazlenuts, and Cashews. He carries epipen for anaphylactic reactions. He is 5 years old. My question is this. His doctor also tested him for Vanilla and he tested positive. Why did his doctor test him for vanilla? Is vanilla also a legume as are peanuts? Is anyone familiar with a nut allergy suffer that is also allergic to vanilla? And do you know anything about what vanillas to avoid, such as real vanilla vs. artificial vanilla? Any immediate help on this would be much appreciated. Thank you.
