A 42-year-old female asked:

42, no food allergies, but, i am scared to eat peanuts or fish. does my celiac disease and my chronic urticaria increase my allergy chances to these?

No: No relative risk of peanut or fish allergy in this context. If you eat fish and peanuts without history of immediate reaction, then your risk is very low. If you strictly avoid these foods, then an Allergist can perform testing to begin to quantify risk and this can be followed by supervised food trials to confirm absence of allergy.

This is my first pregnancy, how can I make sure my food allergy doesn't cause malnutrition for my baby?

Healthy variety: Babies are great at stealing the nutrients they need from you while you are pregnant. It is extremely difficult to cause malnutrition in the baby based on mom's diet. Food allergies are unlikely to cause problems, just make sure you are getting a good variety of proteins, whole grains, veggies and fruits from the foods you can eat.

Treatment options: Try an antihistamine like zyrtec or Claritin and add some eye drops. Zaditor (ketotifen) is very good for allergies. It there is discharge, change in vision or pain then see your doctor.
