I just wanted to say hello to everyone. I am new here. My 6 yo has just developed peanut & tree nut allergies. He was tested 3 years ago & tested neg. I found out while on vacation. While I was unpacking the car of all the luggage, he ate a cookie & had a severe reaction in the parking lot of the hotel. Thankfully I had Benadryl handy.
I'm glad I found this site!

Welcome!

Isn't it amazing how allergies work? My son had tested negative to fish at an early age, so my husband and I thought it would be perfectly safe for him at age 10 to eat fresh caught trout on a camping trip cooked over the fire.

Instead of an enjoyable evening, our son went into anaphylaxis! Thankfully, we always carry his EpiPen (which was administered), and a subsequent ER visit allowed our son to go back to the camping trip.

What a trip!

Hi There

Welcome. You said that your son tested neg. to peanuts. Had he been eaten them all along and then had a reaction? How frustrating!

Hi,

Did he eat peanuts/peanut butter without problems before having the reaction? Just curious, my daughter also has a severe peanut allergy, but she isn't allergic to tree nuts.

I'm sorry, I have not been online much.
My son has been eating them with no problems. Just out of the blue it happened.
I think it was the walnuts in the cookie but he tested pos. to all nuts & sesame seeds now.
