Allergic to peanut oil but not peanuts?
This is my first post here. I'm really new to peanut allergies. I was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to be allergic to peanut oil, but not peanut butter?
My Dr. thinks I've developed a peanut oil allergy at age 31. Last week was a pretty bad reaction, hives difficulty breathing, etc... I've had 2 reaction to french fries at Buger King in the last few months. When I asked them what oil they used, they told me they changed to peanut oil a few months ago, right around the time of my first reaction.
I eat peanut butter all the time and have no problems. Has this ever happened to anyone else?
