Is it safe to kiss someone if they've eaten something that "may contain" peanuts/nuts?

I'm 21, I've only ever had 2 reactions my entire life because I am so careful. I can honestly say it is scary to kiss someone, because you have to trust that they have taken into account of everything they have eaten or come in contact with. My rule has always been what have you eaten in the last 24-48 hours? I would say no... Ask yourself this question is a kiss really worth your life?

This is how I discovered my sons peanut allergy. I had eaten something that "may contain" nuts and kissed the back of his neck. He immediately broke out in hives. Be careful!
