Can anyone tell me what these results mean?
Cap Rast Results: Peanut-1.28 Class II Egg white-1.87 Class II
They told me to stay away from peanuts and whole eggs for another year. I already knew the peanuts but thought the egg was false positive. Are they good or bad? The nurse didn't know. I am just looking for the light of a very long tunnel. Please help. Also, he tested negative to peas on the skin test and cap rast but he reacts with hives on his face!

Hi, this same topic was discussed in another thread (see below). From my experience, the specific numbers are not as important as a person's reaction history. As you know with the peas, the tests don't give you all the information. Since peanuts are in the legume family it is not unusual for peanut allergic people to be allergic to one or more other legumes (e.g. beans, peas, soy)
