My daughter is 23 months old. We have had problems with food allergys since she was 3 months old. 3 different occassions our DR. told us it was just a bug and she was fine. Basically that I am over protective. She has had hives, vomitting, stomach problems, broke out from head to toe with bumps, eyes swollen shut and many more symptoms. I wasn't happy with the Dr. when he told me she just had a cold the last time I took her. Her mouth and lips had completely turned inside out from the swellen. He used an epipen right away and sent me on my way. I researched everything possible and realized that is was a food allergy which he said wasn't possible! I then went to an allergist who said she was allergic to Peanuts, Legumes, Soy, Eggs and Shellfish. I have been able to pinpoint the soy and sweet pea allergy but my questions is about the peanuts. She has had peanutbutter sandwiches before and also had peanuts. I don't know of any reaction ever occuring. Of course now we don't take any chances on any of these things. Is it possible for her to eat peanuts in the past and now have a reaction? Confused and worried mom.
