I enjoyed the July 31st webinar! It was very informative. I do disagree with one point. He stated that a small study showed that only a rash occurred with peanut butter spread on an allergic child's skin. My child has had hives and swelling with just skin contact....Many times. For example; After a kiss on the cheek by someone who just ate a PBJ, my child had a face full of hives and swollen lips. After sitting next to a child eating peanuts, she had hives all over her body, and a runny...
Hello and thank you for attending our webinar and for your comments. We have another school-focused webinar tomorrow - this time a panel discussion with two allergists and 4 school nurses. I will forward your question to them for a response.
Thank you! I am signed up for it, and I am looking forward to it! My daughter just started Kindergarten, and we are trying to figure out where she should sit at lunch etc. I appreciate all that you do. This is very timely for us! Thanks!
Terrific webinar though I wish the small study of 30 children who showed no reaction to peanut butter being a foot from their faces would not have been included. My child has twice suffered angioedema after being in the same room as an open jar of peanut butter for only moments so this information works counter to my efforts in accommodating my child in school. Otherwise a helpful presentation...thank you!
This study is saying "correlation does not equal causation" to me. The hygiene hypothesis would be great except it does not explain babies born with food allergies on Day One of Life, like my daughter. We are not avid cleaners, our unwashed dishes sit around for days, we visit farms several times a year and muck about, are outside getting dirty all the time and we don't bathe our kids very often. I am more inclined to believe food allergies have something to do with the way our public...
I think we've learned no one study will ever explain everything....My DS had antibiotics the first two weeks of life, his father had a milk allergy as an infant, and much later I found out his uncle had soy and wheat, and EVEN LATER (like last year) I found out my ex-father in law also had a milk allergy as a baby and was failure to thrive.I think even if I lived on a farm and let him roll in the mud with the pigs, that combo would have been hard to overcome!
