Wow! THat is a long list. My son was allergic to dairy, eggs, peanuts. outgrew the dairy and eggs. No its just peanuts. I take that back, its also Christmas pine trees, cats, and zuchinni. But those things we can avoid, its the peanuts that are in everything.

My PA DD is also allergic to raw peas. And she can't eat raw carrots, watermelon, bananas or kiwi because she reacts to them because of her latex allergy.
I believe I am allergic to raw celery.
My mother is allergic to mushrooms.

My son is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts and kiwi, but not latex as is very common with a kiwi allergy.

DD is PA, TNA (all), grass/trees/pollen, cats, dustmites, and OAS to all raw fruit and vegetables except pineapple and citrus. Raw celery is especially bad for her - even the smell of it.

DS has MFA and these are the things we had to avoid. Now that he's on Xolair we're able to just avoid peantus/tree nuts, shellfish, and excessive egg.
peanuts
soy
lima beans
string beans
pecan
cashew
almond
pistacio
so we avoided all legumes and tree nuts
codfish
salmon
tuna
perch
crab
oyster
shrimp
so we avoided all fish and shellfish
And in order of severity:
corn
egg
yeast
broccoli
cabbage
carrot
potato, white
beef
mustard
nutmeg
cantaloupe
milk, cow
wheat
After DD had her ana reaction we weren't able to determine what food she reacted to, but did find out she has many food intolerances. Here's the list we avoid for her:
broccoli
cauliflower
white potato
pumpkin
kamut
quinoa
millet
amaranth
polysorbate 80
apple
orange
watermelon
honeydew melon
apricot
chicken
trout
bay leaf
parsley
mint
nutmeg
Oh, and she's also had an ana reaction to shellfish.
My list:
peanut
tree nuts
soy (in excess)
egg
tomato (only raw bothers me)
banana
avocado
shellfish
fish
milk (have to really over do it to get symptoms)
latex
orange
Whew!

Thanks Erin...it is confusing! I think that is why I keep it in my sig...I often look to remind myself who is allergic to what...LOL(kidding)!!!! I do have a list of each child's food allergies(what they can't eat) on the front of my pantry...it helps hubby and if grandma is over etc...they have so many, and each are different, it does get confusing to others. Hopefully the younger ones will outgrow some of them still! HUGS

Rebekah,
You just made me feel very lucky. Wow we only have to worry about Milk, egg , Soy, and of course Peanuts and tree nuts. I think that's the first time I made that list including the word only.
Oh yeah mine is peppers specificity Jalape

Mom2Ian,
That's the first time I've actually sat down and listed everything for the 3 of us! Really, it seems that milk, egg, soy, wheat, corn are the hardest things to deal with allergy-wise. The rest are easier to avoid - it's just the remembering. With your milk, egg, and soy you really are dealing with many of the tough ones and probably don't need to use the word "only". My list may be longer, but probably not any more difficult than yours [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img].
