Hi
Just found this site....fantastic but scary! As as PA adult have not found similiar web site here in Australia.
Just wanted to let you know that I discoved peanut oil in shaving cream as one of the listed ingredients PALMOLIVE RAPID SHAVE. I was about to use this product to shave my legs! Is there a list of non-food items that may contain peanuts.

I'm also looking for more information about reation to peanuts by smell alone. I was not aware this was possible and have never been told this by doctors here. I have notice how uncomfortable if feel in a plane full of people eating peanuts......how common is this type of induced reaction.(I flying to the US in October and am getting more nervous by the minute after finding this site!)
Sorry if I've asked two questions under the one subject. P.S. I'm new to this method of communiction though not new to PA. I was diagnosed 32 years ago and with each passing year it becomes more life threating!

pHi Debbie! I do not know of a list of possible peanut-containing non-food products. I just check every label. I know peanut oil can come under another name (I think it starts with an "a" -- sorry I can't remember it right now) and is used in some cosmetics/personal items./p
pIn terms of flying, I'd call the airline(s) on whcih you'll be traveling NOW and explain your allergy and see if they will ban peanuts from the flight. Tell them you are allergic to airborne. You may also want to get a mask (like construction people use when installing insulation) that you can wear to help filter the air you breathe (similar to masks used by dentists and surgeons -- a friend of mine told me just last night they have a PA friend that wears one on planes). Make sure to carry your own food -- my experience has been that although they say the flight is "peanut-free," they don't necessarily screen all the food that is served. Make sure to also have an appropriate amount of medications (Epipens, Benadryl, steroids) so you can treat yourself, just in case. Good luck! P.S. It's fun for me to know you're an Aussie -- we lived in Melbourne when I was 16 (some 23 years ago -- seems like yesterday!)./p

pSynthia how would they even suspect shaving cream? I never did until my son found out he can't use any brand. He shaves with shampoo (IF he shaves that is.....)/p
pI'd let the school go on this one, pick your battles, know what I mean?/p

pPeg541, there is no shaving cream that is PA safe in the U.S. for your son?/p
perik, what shaving cream do you use?/p
pI know there was some discussion here about Gillette products at one time and that was the shaving cream my DH uses./p
pI bought a product for the kids a couple of weeks ago that was for the bath - I swear it was coloured shaving cream (this was blue and there was also purple available) and the ingredient label looked really good so I didn't have any problems with it. But again, I swear it was coloured shaving cream./p
pThe other thing I've found is that when I do check shaving creams (which isn't often, although my guy is getting closer to that age, isn't he? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] ) is that they don't have ingredient lists./p
psynthia, why was your child playing with shaving cream at school? I've just never heard of that but that doesn't mean anything. But I can completely understand the school not thinking about shaving cream posing a risk./p
pNothing happened re PA to-day, but for some reason I'm tired of the allergy to-day./p
pBest wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]/p

pAs far as school goes, shaving cream can be used in art on black construction paper (you "fingerpaint" with it). Also, I have a teacher friend who sprays some on her students' desks, and they fingerpaint with it before a while, and then she cleans their desks. Or they do it. I think it helps get ink and pencil marks off. /p
pOf course, there are always the church camp shaving cream fights (ours finally set a time for it outside so we didn't do it to each other in the rooms). :-)/p

pCindy, My son has tried so many brands and just does not want to venture out into any more. Right now he has a full beard so the point is moot but shampoo works fine./p
pHe gets giant hives from most brands./p
