Not very high: Children with peanut allergy "outgrow" the allergy about 15-20% of the time--it is much more unlikely for an adult to "lose" a peanut allergy.

Not great: They are certainly not great as an adult. In children what we do see is that the younger you are when you develop the allergy, the more likely it is that it will be outgrown. I would simply avoid it, and follow your ige levels to peanut to see if someday, you might be able to do a food challenge (if the ige level dropped).
