Not good news unfortunately.
The peanut wheal came up 8-10mm which is another increase (6mm in 2005 & 7mm in 2007). The specialist basically said the chances of Riley now outgrowing the allergy are basically zero. The only good news was that he tested negative for everything else - even tree nuts.
We are now moving in a different direction in managing his allergy. Total avoidance hasn't worked for us but at least we tried. We are now going to expand Riley's diet to include foods that have traces of nuts warnings. The specialist supported this approach and so far so good. We are now following the "no epi no eat" mantra and will be working towards Riley learning to take responsibility for his allergy as he gets older.
I am going to take a break from allergy stuff online for a while but wish everyone all the best in managing the maze that is kids food allergy.
