oh, am i allowed to post about the fact that william didnt react to sesame seeds!!!!?
we went to a wimpy and to cut a long story short hubby checked with them for no nuts and eggs, but forgot the bun. covered in them. william ate them happily and asked for more.
so happy mum because this year we can fry eggs with william in the house with out his face going blotchy , hives redness etc etc.
on the down side the ole panic attacks are increaseing , so , well we cant have everything. but little steps are so encourageing.
bye sarah

Hi Sara,
Could be just me but thought I'd chime in. Seeds baked into a bun do not affect me but those "raw" seeds used to dip bbq pork at Chinese restaurants will cause welts around my mouth, upset my stomach and labor my breathing.

My son is allergic to sesame seeds, but I too noticed he didn't always react to them. Now that I know (from allergy testing) that he is allergic, we avoid them. But he has always had McDonald Chicken McNuggets (they contain sesame oil) and he never reacted. My husband is Middle Eastern and we had sesame frequently before diagnosis--sometimes our son seemed to react and sometimes not.
Since your son didn't react to sesame, he most likely isn't allergic, but maybe if you have any testing done in the future you could test for sesame just to be sure.
Isn't this a wonderful place to come and be CHEERED UP?! I bet your son is not allergic--I hope not--sesame is so yummy! I love it. I lived on tahini and peanut butter while breastfeeding DS!! Hmmm. Oh well, my conscience is clear. I considered it health food. I distinctly remember sitting in the park with my eczema-covered infant, nibbling pita bread and tahini, feeling superior to my friends who were munching potato chips! I guess I had to learn humility the hard way.

what an old thread!
william is not allergic to sesame, but have discovered new allergies since this thread.
allergies to foods that i never even suspected would cause trouble.
if its not one thing to stress about its another.

there are no safe breads for someone with a sesame seed allergy. We have tried Wonder bread, Martin's Potato bread, Petridge farm, Arnold, Nissan, breads. None of these breads had a warning (only Nissan, on its hotdog roll, though). But each one of these breads, I have found a seed or two on a slice of bread over the past 3 years. My son had a reaction. Benadryl and epiphrine was given at the doctors. Along with a weeks supply of steroid. His second phase reaction lasted 5 days. No allergy doctor ever told me a second phase reaction could last up to a week. I rushed him to the doctors when the hives continued to come every 3 hours the first day. And they told me it could last a week and watch him carefully. This was the longest week of my life. Many allergy doctors do not tell you what you need to know. My son's pediatriction told me this information and boy was he right. When I mentioned this to the allergist, he told me that the information was correct.

I use Schmidt's whole wheat bread for my ds who is allergic to sesame. I called the company and while sesame seeds are in the plant, the whole wheat bread is not run on the same line. We had been using this bread for 1 1/2 years before knowing about the SA. No known reactions.

This may seem really specific and random, but here you go:
The pretzels in the lounge area at the Waterfront Marriot in Baltimore are made from sesame flour.
Found out the hard way. :-( (and I don't react to small traces)

Hi All,
My son gets blotchy around mouth and itchy throat with sesame oil but can have sesame seeds of buns and bread. Just thought I'd add my two cents!
