tree nut airborn allergy? Is it possible?
My son (4) is Peanut/TN allergic. He does have airborn reactions to peanuts. We have always kept him strictly away from all nuts (he is only allergic to hazelnuts and almonds) for fear of cross contamination. Also, let me note that his "worst" reaction was hives, one time, from summer sausage (not sure the connection). Usually a small rash on the back of his leg is his reaction or vomiting. I am aware that this could change at any time, and we ALWAYS carry an epi and fast melts.
My question is this, is it possible to have airborne reactions to tree nuts as well as peanuts? We are still figuring out our comfort zones and as he starts pre-school in a few weeks I am re-thinking everything...thanks so much in advance for responding!
