Hi everyone,

This looks like a great board. I haven't had a chance to read through all the posts yet but intend to work my way through them.

My son is 4 1/2 and tends towards asthma and hives. We've never had any problems with peanuts and in fact peanut butter sandwiches have been a staple in his lunch (fussy eater!) in the past week or so though he's eaten peanuts two or three times and has long lasting coughing fits afterwards. I've been trying to avoid nuts until he can get in to see our doctor in a week but then last night my husband gave him some peanuts and his eyes got swollen and red. Would it be unusual for a child to develop a pa at this age? Any info would be much appreciate.
