RE: Allergy to peanuts and eggs

My 6 month old has had blood tests. Results say she is allergic to the eggs and peanuts. She does not have that in her diet and has only recently started solids any way. How can you explain this? Does this mean if i eat it she will get a reaction from me just kissing her of touching her? Her face just seems to go red randomly and then setlles down again. She is on Procutan and it has been 7 days already and i have not seen it help with the redness. Could it be her fomula Nan, cause that has been the only constant. Should she be on another formula?

You must have breast fed her at some stage and while doing so you must have eaten peanuts or peanut butter and also eggs. She will react to being kissed by someone who has eaten peanuts and also if someone touches her after working with raw egg.
