I had my first peanut reaction when i was 2 basically i ate some peanut butter and rubbed some on my eyes and my eyes got swollen a few hours later when my mom woke me up from my nap and i was taken to the doctor and diagnoised with the allergy. Since then i ate food with walnuts, and almonds and possibly peanuts and never had a reaction. When i was 14 i ate a peanut butter cookie and i was fine till i went back and looked at the label for a 2nd time and noticed "peanut flour" and something else with peanuts. I threw up and wheezed a little like a min after that so i think it was psychological. I basically freaked out but i was fine. Im 16 now and i never really had a reaction since i was 2. My friends will buy food with peanuts, like resses peanut butter cups and eat em right next to me and im definetly smelling it and nothing happens, i can touch there hand when im saying bye and so on. I never realized how severely allergic some people can and are i guess im just lucky or is it maybe possible i outgrew it? Thanks.

when i was around 8 or 9 me and my sister got tested for the works. I was allergic to like 8 things, including coconut, milk, eggs, and chocolate. Today im only allergic to peanuts and when i tested for peanuts i was a 3 and my sister was a 6( doctor said off the charts).

I would get retested. I've heard of 7 year cycles, so now would be a good time to get tested if the last time was when you were 8 or 9. Let us know the result.

I am 16, and I was told that they would test me when I was a fully grown adult (ie 21) and then my allergy would not be tested again.
