Your Child has a Peanut Allergy: Now What?
4 Easy Things You Can Do: 1. Schedule Routine Visits Stay on top of any changes in your child's allergies by visiting your allergy doctor regularly. Our office conducts both skin tests or blood tests which aid in a peanut allergy diagnosis. 2. Carry an Epinephrine Auto-injector Learn when and how to use an epinephrine auto-injector and carry one with you at all times. Remember to inform your child's school, daycare providers and other guardians about his/her allergies and train them on how to treat your child if he/she has an allergic reaction.
3. Read Labels Be diligent about reading labels of all food and non-food products.
4. Stay Informed
