  • Thank you so much for sharing this. Both my brothers had severe allergies which went hand in hand with asthma and eczema. My poor mum had some hair raising times. One of my brothers was allergic to all dairy and most starch. The other had peanuts and various other foods including mushrooms. On the up side they have grown up and reduced the amount of things they are allergic to and they suffer much less from asthma and eczema. One of my brothers had a very bleak prognosis when he was tiny (very bleak indeed) however now you would not even know it. He does suffer from some asthma and eczema but it’s all under control. The only allergy he still has is cheese but can eat a little.
    My other brother does still have a peanut allergy and will feel an allergic reaction coming on if he even sits in a room with them. However he is very aware of his issue and knows how to cope. My brothers, myself and sister knew of their condition and were ready to tell people, if needs be, when we were out. My mum would prepare food for parties etc before hand so they didn’t feel they were missing out.

    My mum used to have a good sized photo of said child and list of allergies put up in school staff rooms etc and a what to do. My brother also used to wear an sos necklace. It is a sort of capsule which opens and has folded up paper for you to write what to do in case of an emergency.

    It must have been very scary for you but you did a brilliant job!

    I have three children and have wondered how I would know, so thanks for this really useful information.

  • Hello! Thanks for sharing the video! My little boy has the same issues, peanut allergy, eczema, and was just diagnosed with asthma. He is almost 3. It has been so stressful so I am grateful to see your video and thank you for sharing your experience!

  • Around 3 months ago, TIME and others promoted the narrative of “expose your child very early to peanuts to ‘test’ it, and to ‘help’ them develop ‘protection’ against allergy to peanuts.” There’s a reason for that, which ties into this. They DIDN’T tell you that if your child has a sudden anaphylactic reaction, it occurred at YOUR hand. They DIDN’T even tell you that your child COULD well have a life threatening reaction which buys you just as much time to reach emergency intervention as in a choking/not breathing emergency. Search videos with your own search terms about this prior push, (even “Feed Your Baby Peanuts” will get you started on the long list) easily found on YouTube from several “news” outlets. You’ll find many of these prior “study” videos. The tie-in is this…they need to, with no liability to themselves, have your child able to tolerate peanuts as they are an indicator of how your child will react to certain vaccines, but this has to be YOUR RISK…not Pharma’s…get it? This explanation is in it’s most simple form. It is not that peanuts are so vitally important that you need immune-based therapy so they can simply eat peanuts. It is that your child’s life is being toyed with, to reduce Pharma liability for vaccines and most especially their additives.

  • Bless you SJ, poor Finn. It must be so worrying for you. Having work in a Primary School, as a Lunchtime Supervisor I am made aware of individual children’s allergies. We currently have a little girl with a gluten intolerance, a girl with a legume allergy, a boy with a nut allergy. Going back a few years, we had a girl with a severe allergy, that meant she had to carry an epipen and knew how to administer her own shot. We also have a type 1 diabetic girl. Yet my main concern is the grapes not being cut in half. We had issues, with our son from a young age, with constant coughing and they issued him with an inhaler. He is worse during damp weather (great in the uk) and also coughs a lot at bedtime. xx

  • Oh goodness poor Finn! But thank you so much for sharing this SJ, we’re sure this will help so many people be aware of the symptoms and what to do with an allergy like this! x

  • My son has been diagnosed with a peanut allergy from age 1. He had eczema as a baby but has no sign of asthma but has just turned 2.The doctors have not prescribed us with an epi-pen but instead instructed us to use priton if a reaction occurs. It is a scary thought and a constant worry. When you said that each time the reaction gets worse everytime there exposed to peanuts, we also thought this to be the case but our doctor told us that is not true! There are so many conflicting stories surrounding nut allergies and you don’t know what to believe. How did you find out about the severity of your son’s allergy when you said it’s a number 2? We had a prick test with a nurse and when he reacted to the peanuts the hive was measured at 10mm and we were told he has an allergy which we already knew anyway. I think as a parent you just want to know how severe an allergy they have.

  • We tried both early and delayed exposure. Neither worked!

    My daughter was exposed to peanuts and tree nuts early (before 9 months); she’s anaphylactic to peanuts; tree nuts; most seeds and all legumes, etc., etc.

    We did the opposite with my son; he first tried peanuts at 6 and was also anaphylactic (just to peanuts).

  • My brother was allergic to milk and tomatoes. We made him learn to eat it over time as a child, and he’s not allergic to either produce anymore.

    Our bodies respond inappropriately to foods entering the digestive system because they’re not used to it. If the immune system is taught to tolerate it at a young age, the allergic effects can be mitigated.

    For those who can die from peanut exposure though… Don’t do it. But for those whose worst response would be indigestion, expose them to it little by little.

  • Now they say to introduce as early as 4 months. It feels like they are just guessing sometimes. At least we are talking about it, and research is being done to improve the situation.

  • I’m allergic to all nuts and sesame and it sucks my mom had an allergy but it wasn’t as bad as mine she was allergic to honey she still allergic to honey but it’s not as bad as mine my allergies life-threatening and it sucks I had several times I almost died

  • Poor little Finn:( Thanks for this video! Luckily so far our family is allergy-free, but this is such important info! I’m gonna buy some piriton syrup. So scary that they can have had nuts fine before and then all of a sudden has a reaction!

  • What I don’t understand is in the 70’s and 80’s everyone in America was eating McDonald’s french fries cooked in peanut oil.Nobody was dying.So peanut allergies are a new thing,so where did they come from?Can a start point be traced back to a certain individual or group?And if so,can we prevent them from breeding so we can get back to normal?

  • I am allergic to actually I don’t know but there gonna do this on me I am gonna get an allergist to see what I am allergic they think I am allergic to trees or grass or flowers or pollen so wish me luck guys please

  • There’s actually a cure to allergies I’ve been doing the treatment where they start off with a speck of nuts and you drink it and it gets bigger and bigger and it works if you don’t have the most allergy in the whole entire universe and it’s been working I’ve been able to eat some nuts and I think it’s great

  • Such a scary experience SJ, my eldest daughter has a lot of allergies and I feel so lucky they are not this severe as it’s something I constantly worried about. It’s so important to have this portion on hand for everyone you are so right Xx

  • Sorry to hear Finn has been poorly. My daughter had a allergic reaction to something we’re still not 100% what it was all her tongue started to swell thankfully piriton helped her. Xx

  • What A Load of Tosh. Try to eat no junk food for 30 days first, then talk to me. It’s not that hard to eat a banana instead of burger. Carrot instead of cake. Chili over lasagna. Your butt will love you, too.
