Food allergy advice and articles

My 18 month old daughter had a reaction this week to peanut butter. We think she has a food allergy and went to the doctor. He prescribed an epi-pen for emergency and told us to restrict feeding her any nuts at all and get a blood test when she turns 3. I still want to go to an allergist and get an opinion from a specialist.

I did some research for first time parents with children with food allergies - here are some great links:

New diagnosis (great web site - Parenting a Child with a Food Allergy)

Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN)

Kids with Food Allergies

MedicAlert Food Allergy Resources

Food allergies

Good luck and I will post as I discover things.

I just learned that Trace Adkins supports FAAN as his child has a food allergy.
