Nuts are different: Peanuts and hazelnuts are not the same. Peanuts are a legume and hazelnuts are tree nuts. If you are allergic to one, you will not necessarily be allergic to the other, but if you have several food allergies involving nuts, hazelnut and peanut should both be part of your skin test or blood test evaluation ...Read more

Do food allergies cause long term damage? Newly diagnosed: tomato, barley, tree nuts, coconut. Mild positives: wheat, soy, peanut, egg. How to manage?
No: Food allergies do not cause long term damage, but it is unlikely that you developed true food allergies at your age. And that is quite the laundry list of positive tests. It sounds to me like someone who really doesn't understand food allergies put on a bunch of skin tests or, more likely, ordered a boatload of blood tests. See a board certified allergist to get a more accurate interpretation ...Read more
Rare: Most of the time people with cow's milk allergy cross react to goat and sheep milk. The casein proteins share 87-98% of the same Amino Acids across all 3 species. Therefore it is possible to only be allergic to goat or sheep, but not very likely. Goat and sheep milk are not safe substitutes for people with anaphylactic reactions to cow's milk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Nuts cautioned,: It is believed that one is likely allergic to most nuts when a definite allergy to one nut has been documented. However this is not always true since some people may be allergic to just one nut and not the others. You need to consult an allergist to sort this out since a serious reaction to airborne nuts (including peanut which is actually a bean) has rarely been noted outside of workplace. ...Read more

What kind of allergy: Prick, blood tests not very accurate re: food allergies. Neg tests exclude an immune reaction (true allergy), but pos tests have less value. Best test is a double-blind food challenge (neither tester nor pt know which is which, until code is cracked at end of test); cumbersome.This excludes about 90% of "allergies". Other blood tests can be used, not "live-cell"-bogus, no "applied kinesiology". ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Maybe: Will birch immunotherapy help with oral allergy syndrome? I agree with Dr. Al Hegab that the benefits are not fully understood at this point in time and immunotherapy solely for the purpose of treating OAS is not recommended. However, if you also have allergic rhinitis and/or allergic asthma symptoms, immunotherapy could improve these symptoms, and maybe symptoms of OAS. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It's important to know that there is a 33% chance of cross reactivity among tree nuts.
