Preschool and elementary school
6 years
one reaction
at the one and only peanut free school he ever attended.
they served mint oreos by mistake.
mint oreo's had peanut flour as the second to the last ingredient(they no longer do).
He had 1/2 of one cookie, approx 1/4 of a serving.
Gives you and idea of how little it takes.

Was in preschool for 2.5 years with mystery hives (mostly before we knew about his FA). He has gone through K, 1 & 2 with no reactions at school or home thank God.

starlight, wow, I just caught an interesting ? you've raised in my mind, which I'm not sure if I've ever raised here (and that's pretty hard to do [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] ). How many of our PA children have environmental allergies which may or may not affect how they react PA wise? Wow. It usually doesn't take me a few days to see a question that is so loudly speaking to me from the screen!
My PA son does have environmental allergies. He was diagnosed with them about 6 months after his PA diagnosis.
Would you care to raise the ? or may I have your permission to do so?
(Man, am I ever losing my touch [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] ).
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I would walk up to heaven and bring you back home with me.

We always thought Shane had environmental allergies. Treated him with daily meds for years. Finally did the 109 stabs to the back and WHOA! No environmental (except cats and mold which he has since outgrown).
I will always remember the allergist's comment: "He is weird, lots of random food allergies."
Was able to stop all daily meds. Evidently, based on the allergist's comment, it is quite common to have environmental along with food allergies.
Have a blessed day,

Including preschool, Jason has been in school for 4 years (1 year preschool, k-3).
He's had no reactions at school, and only 1 school related reaction that was from massive amounts of pet dander (field trip to the Guide Dogs for the Blind headquarters). That was delayed onset. We didn't realize he was dog allergic at the time.
Cheryl, mom to Jason (8 MFA including peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish and egg)
Joey (6 NKA)
Allison (3 MFA including milk, butternut squash, several fruits and suspected shellfish allergies, avoiding tree nuts, RAST - for peanut)
Ryan (born 12/27/05) nka *knock on wood*
