When I read "Recurrence of Peanut Allergy"
On top of that no child was over 6.8KU/L
on the Cap Rast.
Ok, I'm started to get second thoughts again....really bad now that there is clear data showing that the allergy can come back.
I'm only going to Smell Challenge him, since I want to know if he is smell sensitive still!
Thanks for these links!

It seems that this 20% figure is bandied about very casually. We need more longterm statistics. I especially want to see follow-up where the kids who have outgrown PA regularly include peanut products in their diets over several years. Some of these "resolvers" are actually avoiding it after passing the challenge, which doesn't give us much information about whether their allergies might return. Also, all the hoopla ignores the disturbing cases where PA returns, and is worse than before. Not knowing if and when the allergy could come back is not much better than living with the allergy. Hopefully one day allergists will be better able to predict who will really outgrow it.
