This new, FDA-approved treatment, Palforzia™ may help children and their parents worry less by reducing the severity of allergic reactions caused by accidental ingestion of peanuts. However, the treatment – because it is essentially pharmaceutical grade peanut protein – has its risks, and side effects, and is not a cure. Whether or not they are taking the treatment, if a child with peanut allergy has a significant reaction, they should inject their epinephrine to treat the reaction and call 911. But for many parents, the potential benefit of easing their worry about accidental ingestion outweighs the negatives and limitations of therapy. It may provide more comfort in social situations such as school lunchtime, parties, overnights, playdates and eating in restaurants.
