If your pediatrician or allergist has diagnosed your child with a peanut allergy, you may think you are destined to spend the rest of their childhood scanning labels, avoiding birthday parties for fear of exposure and keeping an Epi-pen within reach at all times. The threat is real - peanuts are one of the food allergens most commonly associated with anaphylaxis.

Join Dr. Silver, pediatric allergy and immunology specialist at UH Rainbow Babies & Children's to learn about oral immunotherapy.
