My son is 18mo. I also gave him a PB&J sandwich for the first time and he had the same reaction as your little one. Hives all around his mouth,chin(he's a messy eatter)and his right eye. after 2 or 3 min. then his eye got all swollen and his upper lip swelled also. after about 10min. he had alot of hives and red blotches. (face mostly only one on his chest)I can not believe how little info. I got from my pediatrician.
Well talk soon. I have too turn in now it is 1:30am. (nice too meet you. hope you are reaction free)

Hi Darlene, it's nice to hear from you. I know what you mean about your pediatrician. When I called our pediatrician and told her what had happened, I was surprised when the only thing she told be was my daughter was allergic to peanuts and to avoid tree nuts as well. That's was it.
My daughter has an appointment on Monday with a pediatric allergist. My pedatrician never told me to take her to one, but after reading through this website, I can't believe I have not done so earlier.
Take care. [img][/img]
