Didn't want to quote the entire post, but.....
"Itís important to note that the children whose peanut allergy resurfaced generally are those who avoided peanut for a prolonged time following their oral food challenge, or they only consumed products with trace amounts, and then experienced symptoms when concentrated peanut (peanuts, peanut butter) was finally eaten."
Obviously my child was not one the ones they consider under the "generally" category. We did not avoid for a prolonged time following the challenge.
This also was not our situation. Dd had very minor symptoms during the challenge (a couple of hives), but she was able to eat a lot. I was told that I didn't need to worry, that it was a pass.
Two days later, I fed her the same form of the food as was used in the challenge. Her symptoms that day included eye swelling, hives, and itchy tongue. The symptoms were worse than what happened at the challenge.
The allergist felt the remaining symptoms would probably resolve within a few weeks and did not think that dd needed to carry an epi (we continued to carry the epi). I was skeptical (because I knew about your story), but I gave it a chance because I am not an expert and I was hoping that the doctor was right.
The symptoms did not resolve. The allergist thought that I was an extremely anxious mother. My dh agreed with the allergist. If I had not known about your story, I might not have had the mental strength to safely get through that situation until we got another allergist.
Many thanks to you for sharing your story.
