MMR vaccine and peanut allergy? New to this...
My 13 month old dd had her first reaction to peanuts last Tuesday with hives and swelling around the mouth and eyes. The Thursday before she had a MMR vaccine along with the chicken pox vaccine. The hives lasted a couple of days but then she got a new rash all over her body. It is now Monday and I don't think her ped really knows what is wrong. He says it might be a rash from her MMR vaccine, totally separate from her peanut reaction. Any thoughts? I have read that alot of you with peanut allergies also have an allergy to eggs. Could this have been the problem and if so what can happen? Also, her ped won't refer us to an allergist because he says she is too young to be tested. Should I be concerned? I think her allergy could be severe since she had swelling? Thanks alot, I'm just now trying to get a grasp on everything! Shan
