Any opinions/comments of how the allergy tends to decline by middle or high school?

I am just tickled to have any type of awareness in Alabama. We just don't get much of that around here. Peanuts are such a big part of Alabama and are everywhere. Thank you for posting the article. Are you from Alabama?

No, I'm from Canada. I have noticed there are peanut festivals, events etc. in the southern States. This must be very problematic for people with pa/tna.

Yes! It is a huge problem. Everywhere you go it seems peanuts are there. We went to a Charity thing at the mall the other night and they had tons of bags of peanuts out for people to eat. People stand infront of Grocery stores and sell them for fundraising. You name it and it goes on around here. Of course most people think PA is a big joke, including the local DR. Other then food problems and the one uncaring allergist the town is very supportive. I think if I can get enough education to them all about FA they will listen. Wish me luck!

My allergist said that when my son hits puberty it is possible his body will change and he may outgrow the allergy.
I have very little hope of this but in a few years, we will have him tested again.
