I am at a football camp, my son is allergic to peanuts, four of my family members sat where peanuts shells were, we did see the shells on the ground but can't be sure if there wasn't any peanut dust on the metal bleechers. What should we do? I am waiting to hear back from the allergist.

What did your allergist recommend?
For us, we apply "Travelling on an Airplane" rules: wipe down the surfaces, cover the seat, change clothes and wash hands when done. If clothes and cover cannot be washed pop them in a grocery bag and tie off.
My daughter reacts to the dust (looks just like her pollen allergies). If we can keep the dust from becoming airborne she is safer. At track meets the booster club sells peanut trail mix. So, she sits on a blanket in the bleachers and keeps her food/drinks in her duffel bag. We label her drink. On the track or during cross country races, she is fine. No food on the track!
We have given up professional sports for now. Too many peanut shells in the crowd! No peanut free seating yet in our area.
