4 responses to “Pediatric allergy”

  1. I find the reversal of clear and intuitively correct advice we have given for years refreshing. This could also alleviate the guilt that parents have felt, feeling that their child’s allergies were their fault!

  2. This makes a lot of sense and will change my practice now.

  3. This is excellent information, it makes sense that we’ve become overly cautious in exposing our children to potential food allergens. This will be very reassuring to all child caregivers!

  4. Dr. Chan’s commentary reflects the recent literature suggesting that early exposure to peanuts is not only not harmful, but potentially beneficial. I will add this advice when counseling caregivers on how and when to start solids.
