My toddler had a positive skin test in April
to peanuts and eggs after two nasty reactions to egg and peas. (never skin tested for peas!)
His blood test results from last week show a 1 for peanut! and NEGATIVE for egg so we are retesting his skin for egg and doing an oral challenge.
He also showed negative for peas which is odd since he had such an awful reaction previously. Haven't fed him the peas again until we see the doc and discuss it.
The doctor is pretty optimistic that he could outgrow the peanut as long as we are vigilant!

My son is a 4 + for peanuts and tree nuts.
My daughter is a 3 for peanuts and a 4 for Walnuts.
My Allergist has been very encouraging about my daughter having at least an outside chance of outgrowing her peanut allergy into adulthood.
As PA parents, we have to hold on to whatever hope we can.
I'm hopeing for good news from you.
Let us know how it goes!

Thanks for the responses so far! I take her back on Friday if not sooner if someone cancels. I had said in another post that I didn't realize the severity of the allergy so after she was tested I just paid and left, didn't bother to talk to the doctor, I feel really stupid now!
Anyway I am hoping he might be able to tell me if her past 3 episodes of croup and 5 times with wheezing and bronchiolitus have anything to do with all of this being tied together, the reason I brought her in was for bad eczema. After the diagnosis though I have made sure to keep her away from peanuts and read everything first before she eats it and I can't believe her skin looks the best it has since she was a baby! I am so glad I took her in and found out the problem!
