Wrinkles and Tape: Cordran tape (flurandrenolide tape) is a steroid medicated bandage that might have some value in the treatment of inflammatory conditions of the skin.

Some topical skin creams, including some with retin-a, have steroids in them to help reduce the reactive inflammation that goes along with Retin-A treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Exposure + Genes: One needs both a genetic component and "exposure" to a said allergen to develop an allergy. There is a growing support over the past 20 years, that growing up in an environment which is "too clean" can also lead to development of allergies down the road. Either way, allergies are on the rise. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Allergy tests: There are several types of testing. Some involve certain types of blood tests. Another method is to do a series of skin tests done by pricking the skin and applying different allergens. Other tests are provocative tests that can involve challanging the patient with allergic materials. Testing should be done by doctors specializing in allergy to obtain the best results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

However, both types of testing can produce false positive results, and confirmation with food challenges may be needed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not exactly: The ability to react to certain proteins in an allergic way is passed on from parents to their children, but a specific allergy is not. So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
