She tested positive to walnut and pecan. She eats peanut butter no problem. Would you try cashew? Allergist said it's up to us if we want to be strictly nut free or try the ones she tested negative to. She's 2.5 yrs old.

Why didn't you test for all nuts?

We did she was negative but testing is not 100%

I'd be worried about cross-contamination.

Blood or skin?

Give her a one month trial on all the different nuts in the world that way in the long run you will know if someone feeds her a filbert or a macadamia, she will or won't have a reaction.

I'd try it. Just make sure you have an epi pen close by.
