we just got back from the allergist and my sons peanut allergy skin test went from the size of a quarter to the size of a very very very small pea. our allergist says that he can now be in the same room as peanuts and he can even touch peanuts products...with out having a bad reacation! we still wont have him touch thoe. not untill its as small as the dairy is! and his skin test for dairy was so small that we are going to do a food challenge on feb 20 for dairy... if he passes this means .... mac and cheese! caserolls ! ice cream!!! ... oh i hope he passes!!!

i just wanted to post some good news here.. keep your fingers crossed! erin

Wow! Awesome for you! Could you refresh us on his story?

when john was about 16 or 18 months old he wouldnt eat his breakfast so (not thinking) i gave him some toast with peanut butter on it like his sister was having and about a miniut or two later his eyes were swelling shut and his lips were swelling he had hives all over his eyelids. i knew right away it was the peanutbutter, i gave him benadryll and took him to the er. he was fine but it scared the heck out of me, the crazy part was just a few months before that he was tested for allergies because we figured he had a dairy and strawberry allergry and he came up neg for peanuts. that was march 03 and july 03 he had a reacation. now 2 years later (knock on wood) it looks like he might be out growing the dairy and the peanut allergy is way way down. this is a good day!!!!!
