I'm so glad you had a good 2006 and I wish 2007 is just as good. Me and my son both had tree nut reaction at the same time(thank God my son was only contact reaction from people kissing him) although his face looked really bad it didn't turn into full body hives. I had a trace internal reaction from cross contamination (I'm not severely allergic) I had a very uncomfortable feeling in my throat. There were cookies on the table which were from a bakery and no one told me that they had nuts in them so even though my son and I never ate them I allowed people to kiss him and I was eating something safe my mom made from scratch that was on the other side of the table which somehow someone must have touched the cookies and then touched the safe stuff and that's how I had my reaction. I've had minor reactions from other foods as I have MFA and new ones keep popping up. My son has had a couple of contact reactions. No trips to the ER (thank God). As far as bad ingestion reactions for DS we have been almost 4 years free of them.

Wow. I usually try to ask this question each year and I totally forgot. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img]

No major reactions here but a few cases of mystery hives, one of which prompted a trip to the ER. I don't believe that particular one was a reaction to anything other than a virus though. No asthma episodes at all. yay!

DD's food allergies are increasing in number.
The PA was confirmed.
Also added a few more tree nuts, and then her worst reaction to date to another tree nut. (We had been told by the allergist she just had to avoid the ones she was positive to.) Avoid them all, now.
The peanut-free Quaker bars bother her - she thinks it's the coconut. Other foods containing coconut cause respitory symptoms, so we're avoiding that as well.
One possible reaction over Christmas, either cross-contamination (nuts) or it was the clam chowder, shellfish, so that's something else we're being cautious about.
Not the best year, but as her reactions have all been relatively minor, (no epi), I'm not complaining.

Depends on your definition of "reaction free", I guess. DS had hives at school in the spring. But it was recess and he was playing out in a field, where who knows what kinds of weeds are there. The nurse was on the cautious side, and called me to go get him. By the time I got there (hours later, since I was out-of-state, chaperoning DD's field trip), hives were gone, he was fine. I really think it was just some kind of outdoor stuff (remember this was spring), but I suppose it is a slight possibility it could be peanut-related.

No, unfortunately [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] We had our worst ever just after our school Christmas Fair and ended up in A & E (Irish version of ER). We think it was cross-contamination or possibly egg but still don't know for sure.
