My name is Lora and I have a one year old daughter. After having severe eczema since she was about six weeks old, and going through a doctor or five, we found out she has allergies to peanut, tree nuts, wheat, oat, soy, egg whites and egg yolks. We know her allergies to all but peanut and tree nuts result in only a skin reaction, as she had been exposed to all before we knew of her allergy. She has never been exposed to any nuts, so we do not know how she will react. She had both a skin and blood test and her allergenist told us her level was 100 times the norm, so she equipped us with some epi pens. Like I said, I'm new to this and it all makes me so nervous..I have heard so many allergy horror stories!
