Spryte Posted September 6, 2012 Share Posted September 6, 2012 Oh no. DS, with multiple LTFA, is reacting to a raw peach. 2 bites, and his throat and lips are itchy. I've given Benadryl, though he's just said that he feels like something is growing in his throat. I am watching him like a hawk, and he is acting fine otherwise - no impending sense of doom, no second system so far (hives, GI, etc). I have his epipens on hand, inhalers are ready to go. He is anaphylactic to peanuts, tree nuts, sesame and banana. I'm guessing peach could cross react with one of those? He has never been a fan of peaches unless cooked, so I was surprised when he wanted a peach today. It's his first peach of the year. He also has OAS to most raw veggies, and now I'm wondering if that's what's at play here with the peach. But now I'm wondering if OAS can lead to anaphylaxis too? Is OAS technically the same as a "cross-reaction"? Suddenly, I am feeling confused about all of this... seems to be an in the moment reaction for me, as yesterday I had a handle on it all... Good thoughts, prayers, good vibes... all would be appreciated. If we epi today, we'll have to call 911, as today we are a one car family and DH is with a client. Aaaack.
