Is this an allergic reaction to peanuts?

Publish date:

I have been eating peanut butter almost daily for the past month. I have never had a reaction to peanuts in my life and have always eaten them. Four times in the past few weeks my upper lip has swollen for no apparent reason. I am also now getting these welts on my body and itching badly at times. Can this be a allergic reaction to peanuts? I have an appointment with an allergy doctor in a few weeks to have the blood test done but would like to know if this sounds like a peanut allergy.

Yes. It sounds like it could be a reaction to peanuts or maybe something else. It's good that you have an appointment with your Doctor. I'm sure he/she will help you figure out. Good luck!
