Background: my son was diagnosed with a dairy allergy at about 12 weeks. At that time, peanut came back negative. At 18 months, my husband and I had some peanut sauce on pasta and had left a mixture of peanut butter, water and some spices in a cup on the counter. He spilled it over himself and almost instantly reacted. He had hives and was bright red all over his body where the sauce hit. His eyes swelled almost shut and he was sneezing and congested. We had him tested and the wheal was 17 and the flare was huge, though I forget the number.
Monday was his annual appointment. Doc said no sense in skin testing peanut right now, let's just check milk. It came back positive at 11 mm. Doc (allergist not pedi) said he'd still liked to try a baked milk challenge but wanted to get a blood number first. He said it would be good to get a baseline for peanuts. I am waiting to hear from the doctor, but was able to see the results online. Everything came back negative: peanuts, milk, almonds (he had previously reacted, though not like his peanut reaction, so we had him tested when we tested peanuts, came back positive but only a 6)
I feel confused. I would like to think he doesn't have a peanut allergy anymore, but feel that is not likely. Has anyone ever heard of something like this? What is your opinion and how would you proceed? TIA! And if you read this much, thank you!

Oh, I forgot to mention that he is now 2 and a half, so this was just last year.
