Board certified MD?: Make sure the doc telling you this is doing skin testing and not blood testing, consider a trip to a board certified allergy immunologist specialist, unlikely all of these positive tests are clinically significant.

Unusual Story: I agree that you need to have a certified pediatric allergist/immunologist confirm this information.

You may have to : Have your two kids evaluated by pediatric allergist to reduce your anxiety- worrying about them , wondering if they are also allergic to those food and holding them back from those food.Also your children need to be carrying epi-pen at all times in case of an emergency. Get them all checked out for your peace of mind and be in control!

Genetic risk: There may be genetic factors increasing the risk of allergic responses in your family. Ensure that your Epi-pen is readily available and dosed for age and weight of each child. Avoidance measures should be used and there is parent information regarding food allergies available from the AAAAI professional society. In case of an allergic reaction, please see a Pediatric Emergency center.
