Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for writing you query here You have discussed about your fear for anaphylaxis with nuts but there has be en no mention regarding any episode of allergy to nuts. Yes, there is a way to overcome your fear. You'll have to visit a psychiatrist and take his/her help. Behaviour therapy and exposure therapy ate helpful to overcome fear once allergy to nuts is ruled out. In case of objective documentation of allergy behavioral therapy alone is required. Alternative therapy in form of yoga, mediation and breathing exercises are also helpful in combination with the treatment modalities mentioned above. I hope your query is answered. For any further doubts/ opinions, please do write to us. Regards

Patient: That's what I'm saying I having got a nut allergic always been shown to eat them but developed this thought of developing a nut allergic at 25 how likely would u say that would be to suddenly develops a nut allergic at my age
Doctor: Thanks for posting you query
It is highly unlikely to develop a new allergy at the age of 25 years but allergy to a substance can develop at any age in any person.
Developing a nut allergy at late age is less likely because but don't possess such antigenicity as seen with antibiotics.
I hope your query is answered now.
Feel free to discuss further.
