My friend's have a 1 year old and just found out he has a peanut allergy. Not sure of the severity, but is there any way they can at least reduce the reactions if there is incidental contact with it?

edit: They found out about the allergy from their Doc, I just wanted to see if the various minds on here had any wisdom that was not 'conventional'... wouldn't be the first time.

The usual advice is to keep baby Benadryl around just in case, and then get to an emergency room as quickly as possible after giving it if a reaction has started.

They should talk to their pediatric allergist. Food allergies are nothing that should be taken to Dr. Interwebs.

A peanut allergy is nothing to fool around with. It can be life-threatening.

The more exposures, the more severe the reaction can be (at least from the stories I have read.) Anaphalactic shock is not fun (from personal experience, eating 1/2 of a brazil nut!)

They really need to go to the doc & get a few epi-pens.

That said, they can also get their child's D3 level tested & make sure they sun/supplement to a blood level of 50-60 ng/ml to help support the immune system.
