My son was diagnosed at 10 months with an anaphylactic reaction to his pb sand which (which he had previously had multiple times). In only 2 months he has had 3 minor reactions, not requiring epi pen and no hospitalisation, and one serious reaction where I gave his epipen, due to a container that I stored rice in having previously held peanuts. I am finding all the info conflicting about what I should and shouldn't allow him to have. Snacks that I had previously given him and were fine are now causing minor reactions. I read that it's optional for food companies to disclose 'may contain traces of' so doesn't that mean that most processed foods are a risk?!? He has had his skin prick test for nuts and only reacted to peanuts. I'm just after some advice, directed in the right place for accurate info etc. I can't believe how stressful this is, I hate leaving the house!
