Hi. I thought I had an allergic reaction in september. I got tested at an allergist, and my blood test came back negative for peanut allergy. My IgE was 0,2. Can I be allergic after all or how should I react?

Thanks Karla :)

Hi If it were me, I would ask for a skin test. Then food challenge if that is negative. I wouldn't trust a just a blood test. How severe was the reation that you had previously?
