That said - I always keep (for myself) Benedryl tablets. My friend who is an ER nurse told me if you ever have a bad allergic reaction chew up a couple tablets - it will get into your system really fast.

I am kind of allergy phobic. My sister fed my DS peanut butter the first couple times because I was afraid.

I have had a couple allergic reactions to things and still deal with PTSD from the experiences. I hope my kids don't have the same issues - allergy or mental health.

My daughter has one for her food allergies that we have to carry around.
