No : Peanut allergy is potentially a very serious and life threatening allergy. The current standard of care is avoidance and having an injectable Epinephrine available if needed for a reaction. There are clinical trials ongoing with new potential forms of treatment but they are not yet ready for routine clinical use.

Avoid peanuts: Currently, the only treatment for peanut allergy is strict avoidance, having self-injectable Epinephrine available, a written anaphylaxis action plan and wearing a medical ID. Reading food labels and being aware of cross contamination is key. An allergist can assist in discussing prognosis and future treatments.
