Post Peanut allergies? For children, the best treatment may be peanuts

Quote:
It seemed like a good idea at the time: With the incidence of peanut allergy climbing among children, the American Academy of Pediatrics advised parents in 2000 to keep peanuts far away from infants and toddlers who might have a life-threatening reaction to them.

But a new study suggests that advice did more harm than good.

A long-awaited clinical trial has found that small children who avoided peanuts for the first five years of their lives were up to seven times more likely to wind up with a peanut allergy than kids who ate peanuts at least three times a week.

The findings were presented Monday at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and published online by the New England Journal of Medicine.

Do sneezing, runny nose, itchy throat and watery eyes sound familiar? Welcome to allergy season!...

Allergies 411: Everything You Need to Know to Keep Your Allergies under Control around the Clock
April 5, 2017 - The Doctors are joined by Angela Patterson, Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer, MinuteClinic, and Vice President, CVS Health. She’s here to help us examine everything the nearly 50 million allergy suffers need to know about allergies – including tips on how to keep them at bay.
Quote:
Most common causes of allergies include:

* Pollen
* Animal dander
* Dust mites
* Mold

First, allergy sufferers should address triggers in their homes. Angela’s tips on managing allergies in the home include:

* Keep your windows closed if you are allergic to grass, pollen and trees and use your air conditioner.
* Take a shower and wash your hair if you have been outside to remove pollen from your hair.
* If animal dander is a trigger, do no keep your pets in your home.
* Use a mistress cover and change bedding often to help with dust mite allergies.
* Avoid contact with dust collecting items in the home such as curtains, carpet, and knickknacks.
* If you are sensitive to mold, use a dehumidifier to reduce mold and moisture.

It is also important to avoid possible mistakes when treating your allergies, including:

* Not anticipating and preparing for season allergies; plan ahead when going to areas and regions that might trigger allergies
* Not being diligent about taking medications as prescribed and directed
* Ignoring symptoms and not seeking help from your medical provider

Those experiencing allergy symptoms should get tested to know what might affect them most and determine whether you have an environmental allergy issue or a food allergy. Remember that there are plenty of treatment options available to help ease allergy symptoms, including Xyzal Allergy 24HR. Xyzal offers allergy sufferers:

* All-day and all-night relief from symptoms
* The same effectiveness at hour 24 as hour 1
* Relief for nighttime symptoms for a more restful sleep when taken at night

In addition to clinically proven relief in just 60 minutes, Xyzal Allergy 24HR offers 24-hour symptom relief after just one day of use for 90 percent of allergy sufferers. It is also clinically proven to provide relief from both indoor and outdoor allergies.

In Israel it is common for toddlers and older to eat a peanut snack called Bamba. It is also quite common for this sixty-something lady in London to eat Bamba too! There is less incidence of peanut allergy in Israel due to this consumption of peanuts from an early age.

If you have a grocery store with a shelf of kosher products, it is worth trying a packet, but they are very moreish.

Europeans decimated many countries they visited not with muskets but with the diseases the carried.

Why does it take a study to figure this out?
