My son was, at 18 months, a 4+ and outgrew it last fall at age 5. Also a boy at church outgrew it as well. They were both allergic. Documented by sp testing, RAST and reactions. Both are still eating peanut products a year later with no problems. Good Luck!!

That is great! I am so happy for you. I would love for that to happen with my son.

From what I understand, younger children have a greater ability to outgrow allergies. Immune systems can be hyperactive in really young children. I am glad that your kid did.

That is great news! Unfortunately, I don't thnik my DD will be outgrowing her PA. She was diagnosed at 18 months and today she is 10. She has had no reactions since 2 yrs. old. Her last RAST said her levels increased. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

Not only is Caitlin NOT going to outgrow her nut allergies, but also, are quite content in living WITH those nut allergies.
I'm QUITE ok with that.
Now, if she outgrew all her other ones, I'd be freakin' dancing in the streets... but you won't see me dancing [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Please do not misunderstand why I posted. I was not bragging. When he passed his challenge last year, many asked I keep them updated. I also have been questioned twice this week by PA parents questioning the validity of someone outgrowing, suggesting it still is impossible. So I posted to reassure those still hoping that it is indeed possible for some. Now we are still shellfish allergic, so still dealing with food allergies and are fine with that. I never had a problem dealing with it, but of course was excited for HIM when he outgrew.
Yes, he also has asthma.
Thanks so much, and I hope some research will provide some help to those who don't outgrow.Best Wishes!

I was wondering what kind of reaction did your son have to peanuts? Was it severe? How is his asthma - - has it shown improvement as well?

Brag away!! I would if my son outgrew his PA. It is wonderful news for you. Don't apologize for something wonderful happening to your family!
I don't think my son will ever outgrow his allergy...it is much to severe. But I am still hoping that research will lead to a treatment to make it less severe. That is what I hope for.
Thanks for posting!
