Outgrowing Peanut Allergy

2/13/2018:  My Son Outgrew the Peanut Allergy at Age 15

We started with a new allergist who reviewed my son's blood test and prepared a skin prick test for a variety of allergens.  Both the blood and skin prick came back negative for the peanut allergen so it was time for a challenge test--actually eating the peanuts in the doctor's office.  We were there for four hours and my son was able to eat about 5 crackers with about 1 teaspoon of peanut butter on each one, increasing in amounts.  He was nervous but it was a success.  So there is hope.
