Food Allergy Treatments Show Promising Results

A report from NBCNews explains two new treatments being studied: multiple food oral immunotherapy and a new skin patch. The treatments involve exposing the patient to a small amount of their allergen and slowly increasing the dose to build up tolerance. There is no cure for food allergies and these treatments are still being studied and are not available to all patients.

As a mother of a son (age 11) who has been dealing with this allergy combo. since one, I agree with this article.  We also have contact and air borne to same which just adds to it all.  The important thing to remember is to read, read and read and know about everything that goes into your child's mouth.  Cooking things at home is major too.  My dream is that they will find a cure to all food allergies and to find resturants that actually can come up with something for my child to eat besides fruit. Hugs to all.
