My daughter has nightshade allergies... I have not been able to find much information on this type of allergy or any type of support group for children with this type of allergy. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Row99,

I recently had food allergy testing. On the lab order form it listed: Night Shade Family - bell pepper, cayenne pepper, egg plant, melon pear, potato (white) and tomato.

Hopefully this helps. I also hope that someone else has more info for you.

Take care, Debbie.

I'm sorry I don't have any more information for you. Have you talked with your daughter's allergist?

I want to welcome you to the board! There are some different allergies here, so I hope you will stay with us.

Hi Row, I am 47 yrs old and have just discovered that I am allergic to the nightshade family of foods. The better thing is that I have has my symptems since I can remember , Like back to the age of 5. Myallergy shows Only on my Hands in the form of severe dermatitis. I have been to diffrent Drs all my life and never once did anyone say it could be a food allergy. So I guess you' are lucky that you know what the allergy is.
I Can not eat ot touch raw or cooked Tomatoes, white potatoes, peppers of any kind, including spices, (chili,Paprika, cayenne, ect)Eggplant,and I can not touch petunias. I hope your daughter adjusts ok to her dietary changes. There is a newsletter for arthritis/ no nightshade. ? something like that. Google it. Very intersting info.
