Kids and severe peanut allergy

Posted by @loriinll, Mar 15, 2017

My 4 y/o granddaughter has a severe allergy to peanuts as well as milk/dairy.

Are there support groups and/or resources available? …peanut allergy number is 100+.

Hi @loriinll,

Welcome to Connect. Here is some information from Mayo Clinic, specifically about peanut allergies: http://mayocl.in/1PAWPt4

I would really encourage you to see this Facebook Live discussion (Food Allergies with Dr. Benjamin Wright), taking place today, Thursday, March 16, 3:00 p.m. PT (5:00 p.m. CT / 6:00 a.m. ET); you don’t need a Facebook account, and you can view the details and sign up here: http://mayocl.in/2mxIUd3

I hope @jdunlap10, @photogal10, @yusofa, @mari will return to share their experiences as well.

@loriinll, I’m sure Connect members would also benefit from your insights about your granddaughter; what symptoms does she have? How do you stay vigilante about avoiding exposure to peanuts and dairy?
