Welcome to Bo's peanut allergy treatment blog. He is a typical fun-loving 7 year old with lots of friends and a severe peanut allergy. For the record, he has been allergy tested twice within the last year and both times had a RAST score of over 100 with specific response to peanut as a severe allergen. Though I have not tested positive for any other food allergies besides peanut, He only eats foods that are peanut free and tree nut free just to be safe. Currently, Bo is in a 2 year peanut allergy research treatment study at Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACHRI) in Little Rock.
So his parents created "ASK ABOUT MY PEANUT ALLERGY" blog site to share his story and experiences about his peanut allergy, as well as, to provide resources to families dealing with food allergies like peanut allergies. We plan to update our blogs weekly to discuss interesting food allergy topics, food allergy products and to keep you updated on Bo's progress in the peanut allergy desensitization treatment study at Arkansas Children's Hospital.
We hope this site will help us learn from each other so families and kids dealing with food allergies, like Bo's peanut allergy, can stop worrying all the time about what we eat and get back to our normal lives.
The emergency medicines Bo carries with him to treat any allergic reactions include:
His other allergies include dust mites and pet dander. Though he has eczema and asthma, my low dosage daily regimine of Flovent and Zyrtec have kept them both under control.
Some of Bo's favorite things include:
- Star Wars
- LSU football, basketball & baseball (Geaux Tigers!)
- New Orleans Saints
- Playing football, baseball and soccer
- Playing my Playstation 3, Wii and Nintendo DS games
