Hi all-
I just signed up tonight & am already learning from some of your posts. I look forward to benefiting from your experience & ideas. I have a 16 month old who was diagnosed with a severe peanut allergy at 8 months, following 2 contact reactions.

I also maintain a website for my local support group. We have lots of links to restaurant allergen charts on the links page, that people seem to find helpful. The website is [url=""][/url]

Looking forward to getting to know you all-
Melissa Schwarzell

Hi Melzel, welcome to the board. My dd now 9 1/2 first reacted at ten months so we have been at this for a while now. There are many here who are more than willing to help, so don't hesitate to jump right in. :)
p.s. great to see you're so proactive at helping others yourself!

Hi There
My DS is 7 and has allergy to peanuts, amoxicillan, nickel, oak, dogs, cat, dust.
Lots to learn but it is manageable. and as they get older the situations that come up change.. so I just keep learning.
