5 year old daughter follows the foot steps of her father and has PA. I am really relieved to know that the anxiety of lack of control is share with you all. I have all the ingredients to actaully make cookies myself for her and will not do it. I do not want to give her cookies ever again! Nice to know that I am not alone!

Two things really set me off 1. trip to ER was awful. Triage nurse asked if she was breathing, I replied yes, for now. She asked me to wait in the waiting room until she was ready for me... (Ended up that 5 secs. later, she came back out and ran us back to a doctor) 2nd thing that angers me is the reading I did on this site regardig Clinique. My daughter had played lip gloss. She simply applied it to her lips... So, at this point we do nto know if it was lip gloss or almond extract...

Monica, welcome! [img][/img]
Did you just find out that your daughter was PA?
I'm sorry, I didn't check your profile, are you American, Canadian, or from somewhere else? (I have a reason for asking [img][/img] )
A lot of lip balms, I believe more so in America, may have peanut oil or peanut flavouring even (the thought of that just grosses me out) so even if it was the lip balm it may still be PA related.
Is your daughter TNA also?
Was this her first reaction? Was it anaphylactic?
At any rate, besides me deluging you with a bunch of questions, I'm glad that you found us. has kept me sane since I found it 3-1/2 years ago (although some members here may question my sanity [img][/img] ). I have found information, support, encouragement, comfort and caring here. I cannot say that I have found the same level of any of that in the *real* world.
It is a wonderful website and I guess the only advice I have to give you, not that you need advice when you're introducing yourself, but just remember that NO question is too stupid to ask. NO question.
Again, welcome! [img][/img]
Best wishes! [img][/img]
