I have severe peanut allergy. After exposure to something which had to be peanuts (that's another story) FOUR WEEKS AGO< I am still reacting. My face and tongue are swollen, I am itching, and my throat is still not right, and I'm having asthma too. I have been on antihistimines and prednisone (for 9 days!) and still the reaction came back!

I also had a long-acting EPI shot at the ER one week after the reaction. In the past I have been able to get over these reactions within a week, especially with prednisone.
Does anyone have experience with a reaction which will not go away, and what to do about it?
