Does eating nuts when i'm pregnant give my baby a nut allergy or prevent my baby from having nut allergies?

Does eating nuts when i'm pregnant give my baby a nut allergy or prevent my baby from having nut allergies?

Depends on history: The jury is still out on that question. There is some evidence that family ingestion of peanuts is associated with peanut allergy, but that doesn't apply to prenatal exposure in general, dietary restrictions during pregnancy are not recommended to prevent allergies. ...Read more

What happens if my boyfriend (allergic to peanuts) drank almond milk without having a reaction, can he eat powdered almond?

Probably: Peanut and almond are not cross reactive. If there is no history of almond allergy in the first place, then drinking almond milk confirms no allergy. That said you have to make sure that the almond powder is not processed in a factory which also makes peanut products. ...Read more

No: just avoid peanuts, keep an antihistaminic like benadryl (diphenhydramine) handy in case you eat peanuts by mistake, also you need to keep an epinephrine pen,the only treatment so far is avoidance of peanuts or any food that contains them, perhaps depends on the degree of sensitization, some patients can tolerate a small amount, others would react even to the smell,please c an allergist for assessment and follow up ...Read more

Dr. Al Hegab Dr. Hegab
2 doctors agreed:

Almond is different: it's a tree nut, different from peanuts, no cross reactivity, but he can be allergic to both, if he drank almond milk and was exposed to almond before with no reaction, then he would have no problem eating powdered almond, just be cautious, try a small amount first, you can try it in a doctor's office/waiting room, if any problem, so you are in the very place you want to be in, take care ...Read more

What happens if i eat almonds if I have a tree nut allergy?

What happens if i eat almonds if I have a tree nut allergy?

No, you shouldn't: It largely depends on what type of tree nut allergy you have, and if you are allergic to several tree nuts. It's important to know that there is a 33% chance of cross reactivity among tree nuts. There is also a possibility of cross contamination, since many manufacturers process other nuts in the same proximity. Safest options is to avoid all tree nuts. ...Read more

Can you tell me if I have a minor peanut allergy, will defatted peanut flour give i a reaction?

Can you tell me if I have a minor peanut allergy, will defatted peanut flour give i a reaction?

Likely: I agree with Dr Grieve's comments but do want to note that it is the protein part of peanuts one is allergic to and thus " de-fatting" it does not make it less allergenic. In fact there is evidence that roasting peanuts to extract the fat actually makes the peanuts more allergenic. I totally agree that you should consult an allergist. ...Read more

Hello, i have body acne everywhere and i was wondering if peanut butter could affect acne? i eat ALOT so could it be a newly developing peanut allergy

Unlikely: oily foods in general may affect acne, but not a cause for it, and eating peanut butter a lot doesn't mean you will develop peanut allergy, peanut sensitivity would have developed earlier, and you won't be able to tolerate peanut butter or peanuts, that being said, you need to eat in moderation and concentrate on healthy foods, take care ...Read more

Im allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, soy beans and rye, my throat would swell up but if i take benadryl i can eat what i want, wondered if anyone else ca?

Do tryptase level.: Multiple food allergies are difficult to deal with. I usually see 6-7 people a year with this allergy. Some have mast cell conditions that can explain the brown spots. Swelling and/or intestinal cramping with diarrhea is seen. If true food allergy,avoidance to that many is hard. Wheat/ rye free foods may have egg or milk. This calls for a lot of label reading. Consider gluten free & vegan foods. ...Read more

If im allergic to a cat while pregnant will it affect my baby?

Allergies: Cat allergies while pregnant will not affect your child. However, the tendency towards allergy can be inherited, so your child would be at higher risk for developing allergies later. The biggest pregnancy worry with a cat is probably an infection called toxoplasmosis, which can be contracted via cat poop. Someone else should be cleaning out the litter box. ...Read more
