 Christmas is a Time of Extreme Caution for Charlie Smith

For the rest of the world Christmas is a time for celebration, but for three year old Charlie Smith and his family, it is a time filled with anxiety and concern.

Charlie can suffer life threatening allergies to Christmas goodies containing nuts and the real Christmas tree itself. He also is a victim of eczema which increases in colder temperatures.

"Charlie's allergies and asthma mean that Christmas is a dangerous time of the year. We have to be careful to keep him safe all year, but particularly now. People buy us boxes of chocolate without thinking about it . . .I have to be sure to buy chocolate that doesn't have nuts in it," Charlie's mother said.

Due to this Charlie's parents need to be equipped with antihistamines and EpiPens always.
