Ara h 2 is the component associated with systemic allergic reaction. Instead of relaxing about her allergy, we had to become more vigilant.
My peanut allergic daughter has never been on a plane. The thought of putting her on a plane where the recycled air could potentially spread peanut dust everywhere, gives me chills. Every vacation we have ever taken, we have had to drive. It is getting old. Believe me, the drive from Kansas to Walt Disney is a long one.
It is not only a problem for vacations. My oldest daughter is now looking at colleges on the East coast. I know that flying my youngest daughter to go visit her sister would be life threatening. I foresee a problem for our family in the near future, if my oldest attends college out of state.
There needs to be Federal Regulation about nuts on flights. The government needs to catch up with the changing times. More and more children are being diagnosed with peanut/nut allergies every day. The times where airlines passed out peanuts on flights needs to be a thing of the past.
