I had posted last week that I think I had a reaction to making a PB &J sand for dd's. Well, I've thrown away the PB & I talked with my kids about not having PB in the house. They were fine with it.
Anyways, I made an overservation. I had the reaction on Thurs. night(last week). It started with a very itchy nose, (on the tip of my nose,) then it spread all over the side of my nose, my eyelids started getting itchy & my eyes felt scratchy & irritated. I didn't have any swelling. Then my scalp starting itching a lot. All of these progressed over the afternoon into the evening. I finally took 2 bendadryl even though the itching started to subside a little before that. I was fine the next a.m.
Well, about a week later, (this past wed.), I noticed that a gland under my neck was big & really sore. I remembered that I used to get that swollen gland a lot when I was eating nuts, but I didn't know that I was allergic. (this was a few years ago.) My last reaction when I realized there was a problem was when I reacted to eating 6 pecans & within 15 min. I broke out in hives & itching on my face, & I also had swollen eyes. Well, a few days after that, I had that swollen gland that lasted for quite a few days, but that was my biggest reaction.
So, I guess my question is, if what I just had for my recent reaction, would it be possible to have the swollen gland under my chin 6 days after the reaction??? Are there any links to give me info on that?
I hope that this makes sense. The swollen gland theory is soemthing that I just thought about the other night. I haven't had a swollen gland issue like this since I've been obstaining from pnuts/TN. So, that's why I wonder if that's too long of a gap from the reaction to the swollen gland.
Thanks for any info. Kimmo

hmmm. that is a good question. I would think that it is too big of a gap between the ingestion and the swollen gland. I think it is a coincidence (sp?). although.. when DS had a reaction to amoxacillan it took 3 days before he got hives.. but that is par for the course with medicine reactions I am told.

do you have any cuts or scrapes on that side of your body? it could be an infection. or maybe you need to get your thyrode (sory i cant spell) checked out. i think its to big of a gap from your last reaction. but i could be wrong.
