What is the whole list of allergies that everyone is dealing with in their respective families? I wanted to ask because I know that there are a LOT of people dealing with a lot more than PA and a lot of people dealing with more than what I've listed below.

Mine:-

DH - very slight environmental allergies and cats

Me - environmental allergies that have to be controlled with a daily antihistamine

Jesse - environmental allergies that have to be controlled with a daily antihistamine and his PA

Ember - not sure that she has any allergies whatsoever.

DS #2 - Peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, chick peas; environmental; antibiotics; asthma
Myself - Does the computer have enought memory for my list? LOL! Tons of bad environmental; most fresh fruits and veggies (can eat them cooked); lentils; asthma.
Yeah, I'd say there is a powerful genetic component working here. The heck with the other theories! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]

I forgot asthma. Asthma with Jesse (PA) and now what is called Reactive Airway Disease (really asthma?) with Ember.
As DH and I age we're finding that we're getting bronchial with each virus that we get, something that both of us did as children.

Hello and Happy New Year to ALL!
I myself am allergic to cats, dogs,(dander, birds and feathers. Dust and dust mites. I also have asthma. I am allergic to penicillin and asprin.
#1 Son - amoxicillin. He gets dry patches. He has cronic ear infections and has had tubes twice.
#2 Son - Peanuts, garlic, oats, rice, white potato, beef, chicken, lamb, and Grass mix. He tested negative to strawberries and oranges but breaks out every time he even touches them. He also has touch allergies. He breaks out from the touch of watermelon and raw eggs.
Medicines are Amoxicillin, zithromax, augmenton and dimetapp. He has pre-asthma (our dr's call it that). He had is tonsils and adnoids out already and has had tubes in his ears 3 different times.
#3 Son. amoxicillin. He has a touch of pre-ashtma and also a touch of eczema. He also has had tubes in his ears.
The ex is not allergic to anything.
In my family my mother, grandmother and great-grandfather all have or had food allergies. My grandmother who is now 81 was allergic to peanuts and all other nuts but she outgrew all of her allergies and eats peanuts today.
Best wishes to all,
Renee

Ok. Here's ours...
Me-- dust, mold, cats, unknown floaties in the air, prob milk (though not severe, and only if I hae a fair amount of it), and maybe dogs. I also have asthma, and break out in hives in warm/hot water.
Dh-- a ton of floaties in the air. He knows some of them, but I never can remember them. lol
Meagan-- milk, eggs, strawberries, red dye, and some unknown floaties. Just got the official dx of asthma last month, but it's only mild so far.
Matt-- peanuts (anaphylactic), brazil nuts, hazelnuts, pecans, almonds, coconut (severe to oil, never tried it whole and not about to), carrots, peaches, watermelon, Amoxicillin, band-aid adhesive, something in his original MedicAlert bracelet (prob. nickel), some unknown floaties, and prob. dogs. He also just got the official dx of asthma last month. His is still just 'mild' too, though more severe than his sister's. He breaks out in hives in warm/hot water, too. And has even broken out in hives in cool water twice. He is also seeing an endocrinologist for growth delay. No dx (other than 'growth delay') yet, though.
I think that's it. LOL

We are allergic to nothing except peanuts.
Occasionally, we will have to have a decadron shot in the fall or early spring, but nothing else has shown up on allergy tests. Jim ,my husband, will sometimes break out with a rash but the doctor decided it was not allergies. Puzzling? huh Cammie

Interesting that you didn`t think wheat would be one of yours and it turned out to be. What do you make of that? You really have a long list of restrictions. One of my two PA kids has a long list also, but not as long as yours. I don`t let him eat restaurant food either. Wheat is a really hard one to avoid, probably harder than any of the others. My son lived on pasta until we figured out he was allergic to wheat. Are you going to make big changes in your diet because of it or keep eating it since wheat hasn`t given you sypmtoms in the past?

Good questions.
I already knew something was up given reactions to several foods, but before the testing last month, even my allergist doubted that I could be allergic to so many foods. When he saw the results, he finally believed me. (Doctors are such numbers people. Now he has his numbers. )

Well, I have to say that my son`s "long" list is nowhere near as long as yours. One is allergic to peanuts, some tree nuts(we avoid all tree nuts of course), egg, and wheat. The other is just PA. My daugher has no allergies, thank goodness. I know families with different kids all with different allergies, and they either have to unnecessarily restrict everyone`s diet or serve each kid a different meal.
The one who is only PA is a breeze to manage, compared to the other. The one with multiple food allergies eats a lot of rice and chicken. Fortunately, no one in our family is allergic to soy. When you are allergic to so many things and have to use substitutes, soy is hard to avoid. My wife cooks almost everything at home, but we do use some processed foods. We just read the ingredients and watch for those "may contains". However, your situation is totally different because your list is really much longer. Our allergist told us the absolute least allergenic food is rice. It is so unfortunate that you are allergic to it. And apples seem like a really unusual allergen, too. It must be really hard for you to figure out what to eat. We haven`t given any of our kids shellfish, because it just seems so high risk. One hope for you is that our allergist says within a few years there should be some sort of a shot for people with severe food allergies. It seems like someone like you would be a prime candidate, since it`s not like you just have to avoid one or two foods. That would really make your life much easier.

Exactly. (re: being a good candidate for the anti-Ige shots)
In truth, though, rice is a major allergen in Asia. (I'm not Asian, though) In North America, peanut seems to be the major offender.

Hello, Anna,
Just a quick question, can you only eat white rice ? , does brown cause more problems or doesnt it matter. ?
Can you eat lamb as well as beef?
Thank goodness you can eat cooked apples , but they cross react with other fruit ? Are you allergic to fruit pollen? . If you are , are your reactions to fruit worse during the pollen season?
sorry , just being nosey!!
my son has most of the allergies,
peanuts eggs , legummes, (this year can eat frozen peas!hurrah!!!!, ...but doesnt like them....sigh)
yeast extract, mustard (stay away from seeds where poss)
cats, dogs , dustmite, oh, and hamsters (well why not!)
Other family allergies, my side , me ezcema,
williams grandparents, asthma , uncle asthma , ezcema .aunt, asthma. great uncle, severe asthma, shell fish allergy. great grandfather, ezcema .
My husband,
asthma, hay fever,
williams aunt, allergic to bees/ wasps.
On a completly different question, to those with asthma.... so, most of you , when you go grocery shopping does your asthma play up when they are pumping out the fumes of bread cooking? I only ask because a saw a elderly asthmatic man having real trouble he had to sit on the floor for a while to get his breath. I just wondered if there was a concection.I find that the rows of cleaning products do "Burn " my throat sometimes , although i am not asthmatic , its the combination of clothes powders and bleach fumes , yuk. I get the same feeling in the summer when we drive past certain fields in the summer , ( blimey ,i sound like a right wimp!) .
Basically i am asking if these fumes are a health risk , due to peanut and seed traces in the air?
bye sarah

Hi, Sarah.
Good question. I have some white rice cooking right now, in fact. I'm not sure about the allergy difference between brown and white rice. Theoretically, I'd imagine that the protein content would be the same. Hmm.
I ate lamb last year, and it was fine. Most of the year, however, it's too fatty to eat, I find. I'll stock up this spring. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I'm allergic to tree pollens, which probably led to the cross-reacting fruit allergy. But again, I'll try the cooked, and see how it turns out.
I've been told that allergies can be worse during pollen/hayfever seasons, and I think I'll begin keeping a journal to see for myself.
Thanks!

Hi!
Me-seasonal allergies (early spring and about 6 weeks in the fall)-definitely ragweed involved.
Hubby-grasses, molds (had severe asthma as a child but hardly bothered by them now...which is just as well since he suffers from other health problems/chronic pain) He did have allergy shots as a child.
Isaac(6 1/2)-no known allergies (although he is currently suffering from a rare skin condition called Mucha-Haberman disease in which doctors do not know what causes it but think it has some sort of immune system connection-his case is one of the worst seen by ped. derm.)
Alyssa(5 yrs.)-peanut, tree nuts (almonds, walnuts, cashews for sure), cats,dustmites, molds and recently added egg- she is allowed to have them cooked in cakes and things but not directly, although we are currently trying to find out why she is constantly complaining of a mild stomachache.
Micah(almost 3)- wheat (I list this first because this is the one that originally caused an anaphylactic reaction), peanut, tree nuts, egg, dairy, dustmites, molds, cats.
Although Micah has not had peanuts/tree nuts/eggs ever (unless unknown exposure or through breastmilk) he has been tested regularly and the exact same allergens show up!
Micah has moderate asthma and Alyssa has mild asthma.

Tucker has peanuts, egg yolks, egg whites, watermelon, canteloupe, kiwi, onions.
We only worry about peanuts because it is the only one that could kill him. The rest we just casually avoid.
He has also tested positive to other things like beef, pork, and grapes but he shows absolutely no reaction and eats these things all the time. False positives on the test? Who knows...

I recently was planning to be food challenged at Mass General in Boston because my RAST tests came back neg. for all nuts although I had reactions when younger and have avoided them diligently since. Skin tests to other allergies were positive.
I was told that the nut allergies were cross related to the fruit allergies which were cross related to the birch allergy so, the nut (mainly walnut, almond & hazlenut) may not show up on the RAST tests but, I was still probably allergic to them if I had had any reaction to them at all.
The Allergist did not reccommend a food challenge because he said they would probably NOT be conclusive since reactions can vary at any time. He told me there was no way to be sure I would or would not react to nuts since the reaction stems from the Birch allergy. And, he was quite sure I would not outgrow the Birch allergy. He suggested that I contine to avoid nuts. He did a CAP RAST retest for most of the allergies but, said the results would probably be the same and inconclusive. I am confused and extreemly disappointed. What is the point of the tests? I feel I will never have a normal life since almost everything revolves around food and nuts are never going away. In fact they seem to be gaining popularity in manufactured foods and restaurants.
I always thought Oral Allergies were fairly benign but, apparently everything is related. Here is a website that addresses this.

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.
