Peanut/Tree Nut Allergy / Pili Nut- anyone heard of it?
« Last post by hezzier on Today at 09:20:20 AM »
A friend mentioned a yogurt he likes for DD (lactose intolerant) made from Pili Nuts...I had never heard of them.  Based on them being a tree nut, we will avoid, but will discuss with the allergist at DS's next appt just to see what she has to say about them.

That's awesome!
Sometimes I don’t think about reading the labels on OTC stuff like that - thanks for the heads-up.  I’m glad you read it before buying it would have been awful to find out the hard way!
Peanut/Tree Nut Allergy / Re: SURPRISE! Unusual or Unexpected Peanut/Nut Sources
« Last post by Ciel on Yesterday at 06:18:35 AM »
Ear wax removers are listed in the initial list. I will name Cerumol specifically. I almost bought it because I hadn’t read the label. The only reason I noticed is because the pharmacist asked me to sit down and do a meds review for the prescription medications  I was picking up at the same time. She was double checking my allergies and I was prompted to read the box of Cerumol in my hand. Peanut oil.

I just used olive oil.

DD was contact sensitive for sure when she was a kid.  We avoid and she has not eaten.  Kleenex with shea made her whole face blow up when she was little and a lotion with shea irritated her skin too.

Thank you for the info.

I read the labels of all the creams in my home. None have it.

DD who is not allergic to peanuts or tree nuts is allergic to Shea used topically. I am allergic to peanuts and tree nuts (but not drupees that I’m aware of) and I do not react to topical Shea. Neither of us has ingested it to my knowledge.

I am considering purchasing a lotion that has Shea butter in it. Googling I find it’s a nut....or a drupe. I eat other drupes.

Do people here eat/use it? (Is it ever edible? I don’t know.)

Do people avoid it?

If you care to answer, please also include whether dealing with peanut or nut or both.
