Hi Mommyoftwo,

Welcome to, sorry you had to find us and glad you're finding useful information.

I know that learning about allergies is quite an emotional roller coaster, we've been on our own ride for just over 1 yr now, and it does get easier. You have an epipen for your child right?

Take care, learn all you can without going crazy, and you'll keep your child safe.

Hi Mommyoftwo,

My son is also PA, TNA, sesame and chick pea allergic, and had his worst reaction to pistachio nuts.

We were totally overwhelmed at first, (especially without internet back then!) but are finding things so much easier now. This site has been invaluable; I think I learn something new everytime I log on here.

Keep reading, ask questions, and you'll be amazed at how much more in control you'll feel in time.

Again, welcome.
