Foods I have tested allergic to: Peanuts, soy, cows milk, tomatoes, carrots, apples, artichokes, peppers, lentils, chicken, wheat, celery, white beans, pyrethrum (pesticide) used on some foods. I buy organic everything. I am more allergic to pyrethrum than to anything else. Other allergies diagnosed - Yellow Jacket, White faced hornet, horses, dogs, cats, dust mites, mold, 11 different grasses and pollens, and also tobacco smoke. I also have had a diagnosed allergic reaction to the dye used for CAT scans. I carry an EpiPen mostly for the beesting allergy. The other allergies, while not nearly as life threatening pretty much combine to make life a lethargic, joyless, label reading, living hell.

Carol- has anyone ever suggested you strictly avoid chrysanthemums and their relatives (like asters, marigolds, etc.)? This is the source of the mixed pyrethrins used by most of the organic pest control companies. (A similar refined mixture is used by companies like Orkin upon request.)
Yowza! I mention this because I know that is often what we use (strips of these flowers) to organically control insect pests in our own gardens.
[img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img] I was so taken with Carol's pyrethrum allergy that I forgot momentarily to list our own! ( [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img])
Me: eczema, asthma (EI, mostly- has made an unexpected return to my life [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] )DUSTMITES, rodents, latex (contact only, TG), pollens, Rhus (severe), yellowjacket venom, perfumes and dyes (too numerous to list) wool, molds, citrus, and egg (moderate).
DH: walnut (severe), soy (moderate), green beans, apples, numerous pollen and mold allergies as well.
DD: Peanut (anaphylaxis), egg, wheat, rye, oats, buckwheat, soy, dairy, rice, apple, and environmentals to go with eczema and reactive airways (coughs and wheezes with any dust or illness). Also has a second anaphylaxis trigger of uncertain origin.
I often wonder where my daughter got her allergies from. (Just kidding! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] )
Look at it this way- at least we can LOOK outside in the spring and enjoy nature from the comfort of our barren and electrostatically filtered home [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Corvallis Mom, thanks for the tip on marigolds. I knew to avoid chysanthemums. I used to work in a pesticide lab. (I developed processes for food-based baits). That is probably where the pyrethrum allergy came from, although I rarely worked with active ingredients. When I did, they were neurotoxins, like ivermectin, not pyrethrum. The allergist at the hospital was shocked at my test results, but nodded when I told him about my jobs. Also, my boyfriend gets asthma attacks from shrimp, coconut, and MSG. I haven't gotten him to a doctor - but I'm trying. I am not sure if it is sulfites or actual shrimp and coconut protein in his case. He has not been tested.

Me - peanuts - usually just hives, but sometimes lips and tongue swell
- sesame seeds - anaphylactic
- use to get hives from dogs, and difficulty breathing from cats, but animals don't seem to bother me any more
Son #1 - penicillin (actually mold) and latex - neither has been anaphylactic
Son #2 - penicillin, sulfa based antibiotics, can't take erythromicin. Had lots of ear problems as a child (I think about 7 minor operations tubes in, tubes out, repaired a hole in eardrum, removed tonsils and adenoids) Dr. THINKS ear problems were actually caused by seasonal allergies but he tested negative however the year we had him on an antihistamine was the first year with no surgery. He also broke his nose three times and had a hernia repair. (Poor guy [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] )
Son #3 - allergy to an insect bite and an insect sting. Not mosquito. We aren't sure what tho. Wasn't anaphylactic but I carry epi-pen just in case.
Grandson - had a bit of a scare with him. He got rashes and diarea (sp?) from milk formula. He was put on soy formula and has now been weaned to milk with no problem. Yea!
Edited to add; Grandson appears to have asthma. DIL has not had him tested, she says he's to young.

Me- dust, dust mite, cat, dog, cockroach, most tree and grass pollens, and more I can't remember (no foods)
Logan -allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, soy, milk, wheat, barley, cats, dogs and house dust. Skin tests only identified 3 of 7 foods, RAST identified others. GI reactions to all other foods that have been challenged, possibly due to eos disease. Currently consuming only Alimentum and Neocate One +. (Since 15 months)
Hannah - so far, so good. Her skin breaks out from any wipes, shampoos, etc. though. So we are water only for her.

Perhaps sillyfeline could corespond with one of these people with multiple food allergies ato see how they cope with day to day life and to get support. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Good thread to raise Cindy.

erik, thank-you. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I was hoping it might be helpful. I'd like to re-raise the cross-reactive thread as well.
I know a couple of years ago there was one member who really wanted part of the board to be devoted to multiple food allergies because she was dealing with more than PA or even PA/TNA and it's posted somewhere on this board (just can't remember where) that we were going to approach Chris about that. I don't know if it ever happened.
That may even be why (the other member's and my discussion in another thread) I raised this question.
I also don't see why, if there isn't a section of the discussion board devoted to MFA's that it couldn't be a thread running in Off Topic. I've personally never felt the need to start that because I'm dealing solely with PA (touch wood) right now. But someone else certainly could and no one would say anything nasty about it.
I'll get my head bitten for this one, but I don't even know if POFAK could be useful to a MFA adult. Simply because of it's title Parents of Food Allergic Kids, I'm sure to get bitten for that one, but still.
If it were me (which it isn't), I would raise MFA's as an Off Topic thread. There is SO much support (and all those other words I regularly use) here and not simply for PA.
My dog stole a chicken breast out of the kitchen earlier (cooked). I have to find out where he went to eat it. I know he scarfed it down somewhere, leaving an upturned plate on the floor, but I don't know if he ate the bones or not. Little bug.

As a PA/TNA adult, I have to say Cindy (and Erik too) that I found a ton of support on this board, even though it was me and not my son that's PA. Everyone here has always been most helpful, and even with the issues I've had with my child (learning disabilities), everyone was very understanding and empathetic.
With my figuring out my allergies as well, everyone offered much support and advice.
You can only do so much, and then people have to help themselves. As much as I love PA.com, the internet is a poor choice for the ONLY support system to have. Supplemented by family, friends, etc being around you it's great-but relying solely on the Net to bring you advice and link you to people is a bad idea, I think. I hope silly feline finds what she needs. But really, at this point I don't think the Net has what she's looking for.

There is an email list (and also a corresponding bulletin board) which was originally for multiple-food-allergy adults and teens, but is open to parents of FA children.
It's called [url="http://www.angelfire.com/mi/FAST/"]FAST[/url] .
When folks with PA show up over there, I frequently refer them to this site, as it's far more specific.
It's a useful site for those of us who aren't kids or parents. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] There are plenty of parents there, too, but not so many that those of us who aren't kids feel outnumbered.

15 year old boy: milk (CAPRAST Class 6), egg(CR 4), peanut(CR Class 4), tree nuts(CR Class 2-4), coconut(CR class 2 - avoid due to anaphylactic reaction age 11 months), shellfish(CR class 2 - completely avoid since it's fairly easy - we'll possibly challenge a shell fish but DS not too interested). He has a CapRast Class 3 to Wheat but since it doesn't cause breathing problems and he avoids so many other foods, he's decided to keep eating it - might be a source of his of Eczema.
