Kids with Food Allergies (KFA) – a division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) – has launched our KFA Ask the Allergist knowledge base.

On our AAFA website, our board-certified allergists have answered your asthma and allergy questions through our Ask the Allergist service for more than 20 years. Now we have compiled the questions people have submitted about food allergies, along with their responses, into a searchable knowledge base just for KFA!


Here’s a sample of the questions and answers you’ll find in the knowledge base:

Here are a few ways you can use the KFA Ask the Allergist knowledge base:

  • Search the knowledge base by clicking the “Search” button at the top of the page. Enter keywords, choose specific conditions, date ranges, and more. Or you can browse all the questions.

  • Comment on existing questions. To comment and discuss a question, join our KFA online community (or log in if you’re already a member).

  • Submit questions of your own. While in the KFA Ask the Allergist knowledge base, click “You can submit your own question to Ask the Allergist.” Or click the button below.


Note: Be sure to submit your question using our secure Ask the Allergist form and not the “Post” button on the page. The “Post” button helps you post topics on our online community where you can talk with other people who also manage food allergies. But it doesn’t send your question to our allergists. If you want to submit your own question to our allergists, follow the directions above.

We hope you find KFA’s Ask the Allergist knowledge base to be helpful. We’ll be adding to the knowledge base, so check back often. But remember, we can only provide general advice through this service, and we can’t answer questions about specific consumer products. It can help you as you manage food allergies, but it can’t replace the valuable relationship you have with your or your child’s doctor. Always talk with your or your child’s doctor before changing their food allergy management plan.
