    Default Nut Allergies

    Both my girls - both 2 and under seem to have nut allergies and I'm trying to find out more information, particularly about how to overcome it. My girls only get a mild reaction well rash/hives all over the body over 2 hours. So I wanted to know if anyone has any success with overcoming nut allergies. I have found a couple of things I want to test out but would love to know from others personal experiences.

    Also, if your child has a nut allergy...were they born via csec?

    I would go and see a specialist and determine exactly what they are allergic to and go from there.

    22 month old DD was allergic to wheat but outgrew it, but is still allergic to egg, peanuts, tree nuts and sesame. To top it off she's cows milk protein intolerant too.

    She was born vaginally.

    Is there a theory about c-sections and allergies?

    My friend's DS was born vaginally and has had all sorts of allergies.
    He is 6 years old.
    He has been to allergy specialists and they have tested him regularly to determine the level of allergy he has to things.
    He is now not allergic to soy, egg or cow milk protein. He grew our of those allergies.
    He is ok with almonds, but has anaphylactic levels for cashews and peanuts.
    Other nuts he is ok with, but his mum avoids them as most nuts are processed on the same line. He has toblerone as it is a choc bar which only processes almonds on that line.
    He goes back in February to gave another test and see if his levels have decreased again, and whether he can have a challenge with cashews or peanuts.

    It has been a tough road for them.

    Thank you for your replies. At the moment, I am only intested in finding out people who have outgrown NUT allergies, as it appears that it is harder to outgrow these rather than things such as egg, milk, soy, etc. My older daughter outgrew her egg allergy by the time she was two and now has eggs all the time.

    As for cesctions....yes according to research children who are born via csec are 5 times more likely to develop allergies (before age 2)

    Also, I'm going to try giving probiotics as that is supposed to help (and prevent) the body overcome allergies but you have to get the good probiotics. I'll try and remember to post about how it goes.

    My son has a nut allergy that came up the second and third time he had peanut butter, he reacted with a rash on his chin and after seeing a specialist and having a skin prick test we now carry an epi pen as the Dr said he may react at first by just a rash but that at any time it could turn into a anaphylactic reaction. He also told me that only 20% of children grow out of nut allergies. I have been giving him a probiotic since he was born and it made no difference to him getting allergies.

    Wasn't there also a theory that more breasted babies get nut allergies? Or bub's that didn't start solids til after 6 months?
