It has nothing to do with actually having peanuts/tree nuts for a food choice. It's the whole fear of accidental exposure that I can't stand. I would have no problem being peanut/tree nut free if we were not allergic!

Don't live in fear. Just live life for today, kwim?

I wouldn't let the numbers stress you out too much. When my dd was younger her egg allergy went up, down and all around without any exposures. I figured we were okay as long as we avoided them and there were no reactions.

My dd is 8 1/2 years old and has only had her initial exposure 7 1/2 years ago the spt was off the mark and her rast was over 100. Seven years later with no exposures her rast is still the same. I think the numbers are just numbers and we should go by our own avoidance because it seems the numbers will just do what they want to do anyway.

Did she outgrow the egg? Did her numbers jump up to Class 5 or 6?

Her results went from three to five with no exposure then went to 1 then she outgrew the allergy.
