Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

AGlick0927 ·
Hello! My 2.5 year old daughter has tested positive to peanuts, tree nuts, egg and dairy on a skin test (2 different times) She has had reactions to both egg and dairy, however she has never ingested any nuts. We just received the results of her first ever blood test and it confirmed egg and dairy, however it came back negative to all nuts! We will be scheduling an in office peanut challenge. My question is, since I know that false negatives are more rare than false positives, should I feel...

Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

Jennifer Roberge ·
Thank you for this very detailed explanation. However, I'm not sure I agree with this statement "if your child can eat a food without developing any symptoms, then they are unlikely to be allergic to that food." My son has tested negative to pretty much every allergy skin prick and blood test - only positive to hazelnuts one time and walnuts another time, both in skin prick tests. He suffered from severe eczema, head to toe, and we were looking for answers. There was no particular food that...

Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

Hi MulanMommy - It's incredible what food can do to the body - good or bad. In our son's case, he now has severe reactions, borderline anaphylaxis, with dairy, soy, gluten, corn, and tree nuts. He can not even have one bite - or a trace. Still also triggers eczema. He used to be very sensitive to tomatoes, red pepper, and cantelope, but now that his eczema is under control, he can eat these things every few days, but as you said, never more than two days in a row. The same with coconut. So...

My daughter (now 16 years old) was diagnosed at age 2 and had two subsequent positive skin tests to peanuts and tree nuts, but has never had a reaction at all other than her first (to walnut) at about 1 yr old. So I was hoping that the peanut positive was a false positive all along. We had component testing done recently, using the Uknow peanut test through Phadia (Thermo Fisher Scientific) which we were told was more comprehensive and accurate and the results show a severe peanut allergy.

Re: Six-Year-Old's Heart Stops After Eating Macadamia Nut Cookie, Life Saved by First Responders

Kids With Food Allergies ·
KFA ADMIN: There is one statement in the article that is incorrect that we would like to clarify. In the U.S., food manufacturers are not required to state if food was processed in the same facility as peanuts (or any other major food allergen). FDA regulated foods are required to list top 8 allergens in the ingredients list if the food contains one of those allergens (peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, soy, wheat, fish, shellfish).

Deannalee ·
Thanks. I myself only have eczema, haven't tested myself for food or environmental yet. But my son is the one who suffers. He has eczema, and a severe allergy to peanuts/ tree nuts, and high allergy to wheat, gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, corn, pinto beans, tomatoes, potatoes...and a picky eater on top of all that. And highly allergic to cat/dog dander and dust mites. Very hard to find stuff he can eat, or will eat. Hoping to find some support here. ☺

Re: New Epinephrine Study Shows Alarming Results

Campbell ·
I was complacent. My 14 year old daughter was complacent. Eye-rolls and annoyed posture every time I asked if she had her epi-pen. She doesn't remember her reaction when she was 2.75 years old and there have been many, many expired epi-pens since. I used to say it was the best money I ever threw away. Until this year, I got annoyed. I was certain I had sent in an epi-pen in the fall for school. The nurse sent an email to all delinquent parents of food allergic kids. "Your child's epi-pen is...

Re: Super Bowls of Fruit Dip (Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Egg-Free)

Kids With Food Allergies ·
Take note: Although coconut is considered a "tree nut" by the Food and Drug Administration, studies have shown that coconut is not related to "tree nut allergy". Although it is possible to be allergic to coconut, most patients with tree nut allergy will not need to avoid coconut. Please consult with your allergist for recommendations based on your needs.

Re: Non-Cupcake Classroom Birthday Celebration Idea

Bustermonkey ·
That is a cute idea. However, please remember anytime we offer food to our child's classmates we risk allergies. My youngest daughters is allergic to Yellow 5 (which is found in almost all applesauce brands - except the all natural). If she were to eat this snack, she would have a very severe rash for the remainder of the day. Most of us send snacks that avoid peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, wheat. But, allergies come in many different forms. For classroom birthdays, I always avoid food.

Do the Food Allergen Labeling Laws Apply to Cosmetics?

Kids With Food Allergies ·
From lip balm and shampoo to moisturizers and eye shadow, cosmetics are overseen by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
