PC - sorry for seeming dumb but how does having Asthma correlate with peanut butter?
Do you mean just incase it triggers a reaction as Asthmatics, Hayfever suffers and allergy sufferes generally meld or can meld into each other?
Only I was born with Asthma, no eczema but I am developing hayfever but I have eaten Peanut butter by the truck load since a child and still enjoy it now, i haven't noticed a reaction.
It's a while now for me (mine are 4 and 2) but IIRC there is some connection between having having asthma, eczema and allergies in general.
FWIW, I was allergic to strawberries and some fish as a child, but was also brought up on peanut butter! When my children were at that early eating stage I avoided the fish to which I had been allergic and wouldn't give them strawberries until they were nearly two, but gave them peanut butter from age about 12m.
Is there any test you can carry out to find out if they may be allergic? Or what about peanut oil on the skin? And is it just peanuts, or all nuts that can cause a problem. We don't have peanut allergy in our family, but plenty of other allergies. Ds is quite wheezy and had a night cough during the winter, so there is the possiblity of asthma.
