    Allergist told me last week that 20% of people outgrow their allergies. There is a plan for desensitization coming up soon! We’ll see if that helps!

    Update!

    Because my son has had 3 different reactions in the past: something unknown around 10 months, a reaction to peanuts around 14-15 months (yes, I introduced it to him early at 6 months and he had no reaction then – allergies don’t always show up the first time so keep that in mind!! The pediatrician confirmed that for me as well), and a reaction to pistachios I thought (turns out to be sesame seeds too, which were on the plate with the pistachios) last month at 22 months old, we saw the allergist last week and he agreed testing him is best because of what has happened.

    I don’t think allergists will test anyone just because. I think they will only test if you have a history of allergic reactions.

    It turns out he is allergic to pretty much all nuts, sesame seeds, and soy. 🙁

    Yes it has. 🙁 I wonder what has changed in our foods to bring up so many allergies. We found out last year my son has a peanut allergy and yes I introduced it to him early and he didn’t have a reaction to it. His reaction came later on so keep in mind that early introduction or even first time introductions DON’T always show up at first! We learned this through my son and our pediatrician confirmed that not all allergies show up at first! Keep that in mind!

    We just got his allergy test results back after another reaction to another nut and seed (pistachio but it turns out it was also a reaction to sesame seeds). He is allergic to pretty much all nuts, soy, and sesame seeds. 🙁

    Not sure but my son is 22 months and we made an appt for him to test in the next week. He’s had 3 different allergic reactions and I know some can be outgrown but for peace of mind, I’d like to know

    I actually agree with this! My toddler had no reaction to peanuts at first..his allergic reaction came later. And what you saidjs similar to what the allergy Dr told us as well.

    I agreed with you. 🙂 I wanted to just write to let everyone know that the allergies don’t always show up the first time so us parents have to keep an eye on it a bit longer. I have a friend who even developed a nut allergy as an adult! How crazy! Thank you! 💕
