Hi! This is my first post here, so I am new at this. But, I will be studying abroad in mexico in a few months and am very worried about my peanut allergy! Not only do i have the same usual problem with it, but I will have to translate and all of that stuff, which will probably make it harder to really get the point across! Any advice?

If you do a search for Spanish or of my posts, I know I have posted links to some excellent articles on allergies in Spanish. sorry I don't have time right now to find things for you myself.
good luck and take care

Hello! I'm not PA (my daughter is), but I studied in Oaxaca MX between my Jr/Sr years of HS. I don't remember my host families EVER eating PB, nor do I remember it as part of the daily diet. That may depend upon what region you're visiting, though. Generally foods were made from scratch from freshly-bought ingredients.
I HIGHLY recommend bringing extra medication - I was in a smaller city, and there really aren't Pharmacies as we know and love them (once again, depending upon where you are).
Good luck on your trip! Beth
