    Unhappy Nut allergy!!!

    Last week-end there was a bit of a street party in my street.plenty of eating and boozing bouncy castle for the kids.

    The little girl(Sophie) she is 3 an a half was havin a great time.then she just went quiet and i got up to see what was wrong with her.she had started to break out in hives on her arms,and she was scratchin her eyes like mad.Very scary how quick it came on .we phoned the doctor an gave her piriton antihistamin medicine,and altho she still had some hives seamed to ease it.
    The next day she looked like she had done a couple of rounds with mike tyson she had rubbed her eyes that hard she had two black eyes.
    you could also acually see were i had lifted her after my fingers had been in the peanuts had effected her skin.
    She had to give a blood sample yesterday to clarify that this is what it is but we are sure its the NUTS.
    Has anyone here any experiance of Nut Allergys.

    Not nut allergies, but my missus is allergic to birch tree pollen! It's crazy, birch tree pollen is in every thing you could image! She cant have apples, pairs, peaches... basically ANY fruit, she goes into shock and her throat closes and her eyes puff up and she sweats like mad! She cant breath, have to carry a needle thingy all the time. I really do understand how scarey it is, but probably maybe more so if it was my child!

    I was given a job at the last contract I was on to check a guys laptop for personal data as he had died suddenly & his wife wanted any pictures etc that were left on his computer.

    It turned out he had a severe nut alergy & had died after eating a samosa, apparantly he knew about the alergy & was on medication for it, but he'd forgotton to take it that day....................

    think that needle thingy is an epi pen or something like that.it puts adrenalin into the system.
    People are tellin me the same sort of thing about Nut allergys like you can't eat out because you don't know if the chef has been handling nuts certain cooking oils contain nuts etc.as you already know Hudson you have to be so careful
