This is weird...
Today we received a copy of the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network's newsletter for kids and one of the girls featured (in a picture) has a PN, TN, mustard allergy. It's a long shot but maybe they would give your name to her family and they could contact you?
Mustard comes from a seed. Does your daughter have a seed allergy?

what struck me about that article is that the girl's dr recommended Benadryl for her peanut allergy?
What's up with that?

My kids that are PA (diagnosed at 18 months)were advised to avoid all seeds until age 5. Mustard was included in the list of foods to avoid (because it contains mustard seeds). My oldest continually tested negative for most seeds, so when she reached age 5, we were told she no longer had to avoid seeds. If you're dealing with a mustard allergy, you might want to check for other seed allergies as well.

Hi, MFA Mom! :) Yes, my son is allergic to mustard. He has actually never eaten it, it just showed up on his rast when we had him tested and we subsequently avoided, so I don't know what his reaction to it would be. We don't keep any in the house. He is also allergic to sesame, which is of course also a seed, so I figured they were the same family and wasn't surprised by it. His score for mustard was actually higher than for sesame. It's certainly the easiest of his allergens to avoid! The main thing I have to watch out for is barbeque sauce, they all seem to have mustard as an ingredient.

Sorry to hear about your DD mustard allergy. My DD has it too, as well as a few other seed allergies. FYI, a friend of mine works in the food industry and mustard can be included under spices in the ingredients list. MY DD has no problem with canola oil, though. An agronomist told me that the canola plant and mustard are very similar (only 1-2 genes different).
take care,

We deal with a mustard allergy too. It's not that difficult but you do need to keep it in mind with any processed food that says "natural flavors" or "spices" since mustard is not one of the top allergens that has to be labeled.
Take care,

Sorry My PC was down for a bit, but WOW I was never told a seed allergry. I have given her seasme seeded rolls before and she eats jewish pickles from the barrell at the deli and and she is ok but put mustard on her plate(DH did this) and she blows up her face takes on a new shape. I new about the BBQ sauce and the word spices. I am amazed to see that others here have children with both PN/TN and mustard that is strange to me I never thought to link the 2 together nor to have her tested for seeds. Does anyone of you live in the NJ area and can recommend a allergist. Right now I take her to Dupont Hospital in DE...Thanks again for the advise
