what types of reactions have you or your child had? immediate or delayed? (delayed meaning at least 2 or 3 hours after contact or ingestion with the allergen??

Immediate with peanuts and eggs, 1 hour delayed with Ibuprofen (his worst anaphylactic reaction by far).

With trace amount of peanut or tree nut exposure, she usually reacts 1 1/2-2 hours after ingestion.
With her first exposure to peanut, it was immediate.

Always within 5 minutes with known exposures. Back when he was having mystery reactions - who knows, since we never knew what it was he was reacting to! [img][/img]

Sebastian, can you clarify what you mean by "trace amount of peanut exposure"? Do you mean eating something on shared equipment, or do you mean eating a may contain or what?

my son has had 3 anaphylactic reactions that required epi. HIs first was at ended up progressing, I think, because they didnt know what was going on with him (we didnt know he was PA.) He had been around pb, but supposedly didn't eat it - he was 9 months old. After lunch was a nap - for about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs. He started with hives and fussiness then. He ultimately ended up in the ER and rec'd multiple shots of epi.His other 2 reactions were to egg. Both reactions were delayed by about 2 hrs and required epi. He has not had a reaction like that since he was about 13 months old. I know they say anaphlyactic reactions may mean your child won't outgrow, but what about the delay in time for the reaction to I wonder if those who have outgrown experienced delayed reactions, rather than immediate??

Luckily my son hasn't had a reaction that required the use of an Epi-Pen. When he reacted to peanut butter, or to dairy, it showed within 5 minutes. He only showed 2 mild reactions to peanut butter before we cut it out of his diet. He had many mild reactions to dairy because we were told by our ped. to keep giving him milk to help him grow out of it. (Can you believe that!) We have since switched doctors, and have not fed him any dairy (knowingly)in almost a year now. Hopefully he will outgrow the dairy allergy, but the chances are slim.

I would say my son has an immediate reaction.
Before we realized he had PA he would immediately say that the PB or peanut was too hot or spicy, burning his mouth etc. and spit it out. This is the only type of reaction he has ever had.
On the other hand, thinking back, he used to get "mystery" hives now and then. I now wonder if they were a delayed reaction to eating/coming into contact with traces of peanut (or some other allergen), but I was never able to associate them with a particular food.

Dd had an immediate anaphylactic reaction to egg. Peanuts she has never had, although she had an immediate non-anaphylactic reaction to a product made on shared equipment and not stated. On milk she had hives on two occasions which was immediate. Also on milk she had wheezing which I have no idea if it was immediate or not, as the babysitter was sneaking it in and giving it to her on multiple occasions. I would come home from work and she would be wheezing. Isn`t that awful? Fortunately she has almost completely outgrown the milk allergy. Her allergist thinks she will be ready for a food challenge after her next cap rast in two months.
