Say I have a girlfriend or wife (I don't, but let's pretend). If she eats peanuts, is there a possibility that her other bodily fluids could be allergenic?

I probably don't have enough knowledge and might gross you out but I know that my breast milk never caused a reaction from my PA child (bodily fluid and all...). Although its an excellent question as I have heard that the peanut protein goes through the milk (maybe other fluids too). (I know you are not talking about breastfeeding by the way-LOL)

There are other threads floating around here about this, believe it or not, and if I remember correctly, the answer is "YES" - it can and does happen.
If I find the threads, I'll raise them for you and let you know where they are.

If my husband eats soy (my worst allergy, along with papaya), I react to his body fluids... and not just saliva or sweat.
It's not pretty...
At least a guy can scratch all the places on his body that might come in contact with a partner's allergen-contaminated fluids. I can't do that.

When DH eats anything with sesame seeds or the oil, he sweats it. I have had bad reactions from absorbing the sweat from the sheets -- he sweats a lot at night.
Specifically regarding peanuts, I have heard people say they (or partner) brush their teeth, and use mouthwash. I don't think that would remove the protein, but it would add risk because it would remove the odour.

Sorry for the delay - check out the Kissing thread in this forum for more talk about this subject.
Good info to know.

You have all got me really worried about this now! Probably a good thing to be honest. However, it is not something that I can even begin to discuss with my parents - we are really not that close. Any advice here?

Rach : just popping in to say "Hi, glad UR still with us... not seen you posting for some time & I wondered if you'd upped & gone".
Sorry, I can't help with the "bodily fluids" thing ... not only do neither of us eat or drink anything nutty / seedy but ... well... I'm married, so I don't bother about things like s*x!

Just checking in to make sure my daughters built in "Birth Control" is still what I assumed (and tell Her) it will be. I have always told her that before she kisses a guy he will really have to love her to give up pn/tn. (She is almost 13)
Nick, I am still laughing!!

I am really muddled now. I went to my doctor and she said definitely no chance of me having a reaction to "contaminated" bodily fluids. Help! Quite important to know I think.

Well, I've had an allergist tell me I couldn't react to just one sesame seed. Look how small it is!
And yet when I eat bread that does not contain sesame seeds, but runs on the same line as sesame seeds, I have anaphylactic reactions. and look how small that is.
For a long time doctor's didn't believe patients were having reactions from cross contamination. We haven't spent enough time educating [b]them[/b] about body fluids. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
