TNA Only - Any Inhalation or Contact Reactions?

This point was raised by Chicago in the thread I have running about the organic mulch next door to me (turned out to be cocoa beans).

If there is anyone here posting that is TNA only (their child, themselves), have you ever had a reaction due to inhalation or contact?

Or, if you are PA/TNA, have you had a reaction, inhalation or contact, that you know definitively was not PA, but TNA?

Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

My son has had a reaction from touching my skin which was was covered in Bath and Body works lotion that contained "sweet almond oil." He is allergic to both peanuts and tree nuts.

AJSMAMA, thank-you for your reply. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I'm sorry to hear about your son's reaction. Although Jesse isn't TNA (touch wood he won't become TNA), despite your son's reaction, your post did make me feel better about giving my vanilla Rialto moisturizer to my MIL. I'm hoping that with the strict avoidance that we do of tree nuts as well as peanuts perhaps that will help in him not developing the allergy (again, touch wood).
Your post was an important one and very much appreciated. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

My dd and I make our own ice cream. She gets to pick a flavor and picked almond. After eating that ice cream, she had hives on her back and a really red face. Definite reaction. So i made that same ice cream without the almond flavor, and she was fine.
Weeks later, i made a cup of instant coffee, and put a tsp of almond flavoring in it. DD was right there stirring it when i poured the hot water in, and that wonderful aroma of almond filled the air. Unfortunately she started sneezing and her eyes got red.
Then, we were in Walmart and she was carrying a can of Planters mixed nuts [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img] and she suddenly got a headache and felt really tired, wanted me to carry her. I told her allergist and he said to consider her extremely allergic to ALL treenuts.

My PA/TNA son has reacted to touching almond lotion, touching an armrest in the First class section of an airplane where they served cashews, and being covered by a blanket that had been on an airplane where peanuts were served. All of these reactions involved swollen eyes and itchiness, treated with benadryl.

My dd is TNA. Thus far, she has has no contact or inhalation reactions, only ingestion. I pray it always remains so!

Jason has had contact reactions to walnut before. One of his grandparents ate a piece of walnut studded chocolate cake, and Jason broke out in hives after he was kissed by one of them.

Hi Cindy,
Yes, I hope Jesse will not develop TNA. I was ucky in my case, as I did not avoid TN, but still didn't develop TNA. But I am avoiding TN now.
A TNA would make my life more difficult for sure... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

Hey Cindy,
Racehl has definitely reacted to the smell of tree nuts and contact to tree nuts.
She was originally only TNA, we did not avoid peanut, and three years after she was determined to be TNA she also developed PN.
