my son has milk allergy and I find it very difficult to think now about joining kindergarten. The problem is that allergy is very high -even the around smell of cheese can cause big allergy. I am living in Kuwait and awareness in schools is still low. Is there new promising ways to treat? Thanks
Hi aboreem1969 - it is definitely scary to send them off to school. It sounds like your son reacts to airborne proteins which makes it even more challenging. There are a number of treatment options being researched. I don't know of anything new specifically geared toward milk - many are for peanut, but they have not branched out to other allergens.
Here are my ideas for the Philadelphia and surrounding areas: Philadelphia Art Museum Ben Franklin Bridge (Between Philadelphia and Camden, NJ) Comcast Center Philadelphia One Liberty Place Two Liberty Place Swan Memorial Fountain - Water turned teal Doylestown Court House, Doylestown
Ideas for San Franciso: TansAmerica Building Ferry Building Conservatory of Flowers or something else in Golden Gate Park Ideas for San Jose: The Tech Museum Children's Discovery Museum Fountains at Cesar Chavez Park Other: Stanford/Lucille Packard Children's Hospital
• Ben Franklin Bridge : The Benjamin Franklin Bridge’s visibility from 10 miles away and its proximity to myriad public gathering spaces in Philadelphia and major urban centers in New Jersey makes it a prime canvas for an LED row of lights that dots the bridge span on both sides and changes and moves depending on the season or the holiday. Sometimes the lights appear to “chase” the passing commuter trains that traverse the bridge, and other times they glow in varying colors — red, white and...
Tower of Americas in San Antonio, TX. If they do it, then I would hope the Alamodome would follow as well. Both would look awesome driving down the highway and seeing the teal lights radiating from them.

In an earlier post, I noted the Bicentennial Tower in Erie, PA. I would like to add to that the Bayfront Convention Center, which is very near to the Bicentennial Tower. The convention center can light up the peak of its roofline and was just in the news for installing new lights that can be virtually any color. I hope you will approach these entities and bring awareness to the Erie, PA, region!

The San Francisco City Hall is a National Historic Landmark building that illuminates the exterior of the building every evening with over 220 incandescent lighting fixtures. They have done color displays for other important causes. It would be great to see it teal and the lighting is already in place.

Thanks VictoryLee ~ looks like proposals have to be submitted 8 weeks in advance for the PECO building, so we can add this to the list for requests next year... as someone who grew up in Philadelphia I would love to see that one lit up, it was always a site coming into the City and looking out onto the building and wondering what color it would be and what it would see! Thanks for the link
Yes, I know your hamburger buns, crackers, cereal, etc do not contain pieces of peanuts that are visible to the naked eye, so please don't roll your eyes at me when I ask if there is a label I can read or if I can speak with a restaurant manager about possible cross-contamination. That and other parents please learn to read food labels! Again, if the allergen is not visible it might still be there hence the "processed on the same equipment" or "processed in the same facility" "or may contain...
Don't be offended if you said you read the label and we ask to see it anyway. Unless you've been an allergy parent for years, you'd be surprised how confusing allergy disclosures can be. For example, for some allergens, they might be listed under pseudonyms or scientific names that you might not recognize.
Sorry for the plug, but if you have sesame allergies, see this petition to the FDA: https://www.change.org/p/fda-a...ed-on-us-food-labels and more about it here: http://www.cspinet.org/new/201411181.html If you want to send your comments to the FDA directly, you can do so here: http://www.regulations.gov/#!s...FDA-2014-P-2035-0001
