Reaction from Sunbutter
My NFA Husband ate a Sunbutter cookie I had made and within an hour his lips were double in size.His tongue was swelling and he was covered in hives and itching all over. He asked me to take him to the E.R. because his breathing was getting labored. They treated him with Two epi injections,a shot of steroids. We left with an epi-pen for him to take to work and a oral steroid for five days.
Never planned on My DH being the one to need the epi-pen. He is ok now but they are sending us to get allergy testings.
He eats sunflower oil in lots of things but hadn't eaten pure sunbutter before.
My DS who is PA ate them yesterday with now problems. Go figure!
