Peanut allergy or something else

I am following up with DS's doc but we are snowed in. Yesterday my 15 month old had pb for the first time. Just a tiny bit. About 3 to 4 hours later he had red splotches on his face. They cleared up overnight and didnt seem itchy. He was around a new clothing detergent and had his chicken pox vaccine last thursday. No idea if that could be related. Any opinions on whether this sounds like a peanut allergy? Thanks.

  • It's certainly possible and definitely worth following up with your pedi before you give him any additional peanut products.  The testing is relatively easy and knowing is half the battle.

  • Thanks for the reply.  I'm definitely avoiding all peanut products until I can get him to the pedi and tested.
