Food allergies and anaphylaxis are on rise, as are peanut-free schools, baseball parks and airplanes. But is it possible or medically recommended to isolate food-allergic children from killer proteins? This hot topic is spicing up communities throughout the U.S. and Internet forums. As the pendulum swings from irrational fear to the blatantly cavalier, school-aged kids with food allergies are left hanging in the balance. In this show hosted by Dana Wallace, MD, allergist and President, American College of Allergy Asthma & Immunology, a mom of two children with food allergies, a school principal, school psychologist and school nurse tackle hot topics like "peanut-free" tables, and how to know whether a child is ready to self-administer auto-injectable epinephrine, the only drug that reverses an anaphylactic episode. This internet broadcast is part of the Anaphylaxis Community Experts program, (ACEs) and national award winning initiative developed by Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics (AANMA) in partnership with the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology to raise awareness, reduce anxiety and eliminate deaths due to anaphylaxis through education, advocacy and outreach. This program is sponsored by Mylan Specialty L.P. For more information about this program and resources for managing food allergy at home and at school, please visit www.aanma.org

The cause of AERD/Samter’s Triad is not well understood, although extensive research is underway to learn more. AERD is not a genetic or inherited disorder. People with AERD/Samter’s Triad often have high levels of cells called eosinophils in their blood and in their sinuses, which may lead to chronic inflammation of the airways. Learn more about this emerging topic with Dr. Tanya Laidlaw, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics (AANMA) asked children to tell us—in pictures and in their own words—how they felt during an asthma attack, and how they felt when they could breathe again. What they told us was enlightening—and heart-rending. We collected their drawings and stories to share in this video.

Allergy-safe birthday parties are possible — they just require some “extra planning,” Amanda Eisen says in her latest video blog. Amanda’s young daughter has a severe dairy allergy and her family makes sure her birthday parties are not only dairy-free but also nut-free in case other children at the party have a peanut or tree nut allergy. “We want her to enjoy her party and just forget about her food allergy for a little while,” she says. A few tips and tricks: • Have your child’s birthday party at home so you can control the environment. • A variety of allergy-safe food and dessert options are often available in stores if you don’t want to make your own. • Get your child involved in the planning and, if appropriate, the cooking.

Andrea Jensen, AE-C, CHES, discusses what you need to know to recognize when your child should go to the emergency department — and what to do when you get there. • Stay on top of your or your child’s allergies and make sure to keep symptoms under control — even if it means another trip to the doctor. • Watch for and recognize symptoms of an asthma flare: shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, lips or fingernails turning blue. • Watch for retraction, a sign of difficulty breathing and indicator of an asthma flare. Retraction occurs when “all the accessory muscles are pulling in and out with every breath.” There’s also retraction along the collarbone. • Develop an Asthma Action Plan with your doctor; it should tell you when you need to go to the hospital. • When at the hospital or ER, ask for you or your child to be seen right away due to difficulty breathing. • Asthma hospitalizations are scary, but you and/or your child will get through it.
