An Open Letter to My Classmates An Appreciative Student Date: Each one of our classrooms has a Smartboard and everyone has an iPad to use along with it.
Greetings to all [Preschool] Parents!
I am writing this to inform and educate others about our special circumstances with regard to our son and his food allergies. Caleb is allergic to: Peanuts, all tree nuts and dairy. Caleb was diagnosed at 1 years old with severe peanut allergies- after having a severe reaction from touching peanut butter then touching his face!
We also ran into some milder reactions when a boy I watched, came to our house with some of his own toys that had peanut butter residue on them, and my son reacted to them. So no milk, butter, ice cream, cheese, no food with almond extract, nutmeg, almonds, walnuts, etc.
We also have to be careful with foods that get cross contaminated- [for example donuts on the same sheet with the nut covered ones at the grocery store]. We carry an Epi-Pen Jr. I am happy to show how to use it to anyone, and I have a print out available with ingredient lists to watch for; if anyone is interested please let me know!
And I have no objections to providing safe treats for him if everyone is having [cake, ice cream, cookies etc]. Symptoms Symptoms may include one or more of the following: Symptoms typically appear within minutes to two hours after the person has eaten the food to which he or she is allergic.
Treatment Strict avoidance of the allergy-causing food is the only way to avoid a reaction. Reading ingredient labels for all foods is the key to avoiding a reaction. If you have any doubt whether a food is safe, call the manufacturer for more information.
There is no cure for food allergies. Studies are inconclusive about whether food allergies can be prevented. Epinephrine, also called adrenaline, is the medication of choice for controlling a severe reaction.
Prevention Studies are inconclusive about whether food allergies can be prevented.
At this time, no medication can be taken to prevent food allergies. Strict avoidance of the allergy-causing food is the only way to prevent a reaction. Medications are administered to control symptoms after a reaction occurs. Researchers also looked at methods for cleaning [peanut allergen-Ara h 1] from surfaces.
For removal of peanut allergens from hands, liquid soap, bar soap, and commercial wipes were very effective. Plain water and antibacterial hand sanitizer left detectable levels of peanut allergen on 3 out of 12 and 6 out of 12 hands, respectively.
What is a food allergy?
Food allergy occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks a food protein. Ingestion of the offending food may trigger the sudden release of chemicals, including histamine, resulting in symptoms of an allergic reaction.
The symptoms may be mild rashes, hives, itching, swelling, etc. A food allergy can be potentially fatal. Scientists estimate that approximately 12 million Americans suffer from food allergies, or one in My college publishes a book for each class celebrating a five year reunion.
