Hi!
My name is Caite, DS is AJ (17 months old) and we have had two food reactions both to peanuts.

We have not formally introduced him to any nuts, however, there have been two times at my sitter's house where he has been exposed. Both times ending in facial rash and watery eyes.

The first time was a cross contamination with a butter knife (same knife used to spread peanut butter then wiped off to spread butter with)

The second time, my sitter's granddaughter fed my son peanut butter cereal.

Both times he had the same reaction: facial rash and itchy watery eyes.

We went to our ped and he gave us liquid claritin, a steriod, and epi-pens (just incase). We meet with an allergist on Thursday to do a skin test.

Anyone ever have a similar reaction to my son's?

I haven't but I know that one is common with peanuts. Danny had facial swelling and throat swelling when exposed to his mystery allergy so we have to keep an epipen now too. He goes in for testing next week to try to find out what caused that one. He is allready allergic to eggs, milk, soy, tomatoes, carrots, red 40, and cinnamon so at least the testing field is smaller than infinite for us.

We go tomorrow for testing, and AJ hasnt reacted to anything else ever. The worst part is that DH and I havent seen the reaction, only our sitter so we don't even know what it looks like other than the description she gave us.

I will update tomorrow after our allergy test.

Thanks for listening!

Skin testing results:
AJ reacted almost immediately to the skin test for peanuts, however, he did not react for anything else (which is a good sign).

At least we have an answer to his two reactions and can be very proactive now about our food choices.

Did they say how severe of a reaction to expect if he is exposed?

Welcome to our group! I'm sorry I am just now seeing this. I'm glad your test went well; and you got some answers. I have a 4yo son officially diagnosed with milk, eggs, soy, and peanuts. I think he is finally starting to grow out of some of it though. He has only had eczema reactions though; no hives/swelling.
