Swollen neck glands is primarily how my daughter reacts to peanuts. The swelling can become bad enough to constrict the airway. You should see an allergist. Any swelling involving the neck/throat, mouth, nose ect should be treated as a medical emergency with epi pen and 911.

It might be a good idea to check with an allergist, just to be sure that it's a peanut allergy that's doing it. Even if you've never been allergic before, it is possible to develop an allergy later on in life, so it's good to be sure!
