Nut and Peanut allergies

My DD is allergic to peanuts, she is 8 months, so of course we found out through testing. But she was not tested for nuts. Are you often allergic to peanuts and nuts. I now peanuts are not really nuts. Questioning because of a new med she started called Atopiclair and possible reaction...

  • Nobody in my family with peanut allergies has any problems with other nuts UNLESS they are cooked in peanut oil (why they do that I cannot figure out)
