Nairi's allergies

We recently had Nairi tested for a nut allergy because she had a facial rash after eating pesto and told me her mouth felt sick after eating a cookie that  had walnuts in it. Considering the family history ( Keira had a peanut allergy until about 4 years of age) we decided to have her tested just to be sure. She came back allergic to peanuts, hazelnuts, and walnuts. The peanuts are the lowest. Dr said she could become more allergic or less allergic as she grows. We will retest next year and for now she must avoid all nuts and peanuts ( which are a legume) because nuts are produced in facilities with other nuts. And just to be safe we must carry a Epi Pen again.
