Hi Everyone! I have a 15 month old who, I think, has peanut allergies. When he was around a year old, I gave him a little PB on a waffle. He had a small taste, and about 4 or 5 hives showed up on his face immediately. They went away just as fast and I haven't given him anything with peanuts since. We've been to an allergist (he has asthma) and when I described this, she said that it sounds like peanut allergies to her. She didn't test him because she said he was a little young for skin tests. Should I just take her word for it? I'm pretty sure he's allergic -- he's never had hives for any other reason -- but it would be nice to know for sure. If it matters, there are no peanut allergies in our family at all.

Thanks for any input!
