My daughter's first reaction is vomiting -- there have never been any hives, but she also has some swelling in her tongue (my tongue feels funny) -- maybe you could see if you could get the child to say something like this. I do agree with the post that said the doctor is a .... I wouldn't do it again.

I've lived with PA for 43yrs and my reaction is severe vomiting (I get a "taste" in mouth first). So I echo all other replies do not let your granddaughter have any p/n products until she has been tested.

Yes it sounds like an allergy and I DEFINITELY would not give any more peanut butter, products with peanuts, or products that "may contain" peanuts OR treenuts...that is avoid ALL peanuts AND all tree nuts (walnuts,pecans,pistachio etc) AND products that "may contain".
The other thing is, I would probably not give the other two peanut butter or other peanut/nut products in the meantime. If you are dealing with an allergy, you may likely go to a peanut/nut free home anyway.
There is really no reason to try peanut products before age 3 anyway, esp since you now know they are allergy prone. At age 3+ the immune system is more developed and more likely to be able to handle peanut/nut proteins.
Find an allergist and get the testing done. Good luck!

My son's reactions to pb have all been vomiting. The second and third ones (accidental exposures; Nana didn't read the ingredients) also involved hoarse breath sounds, but not anaphylaxis. Yet.
When we had him allergy tested, he scored >100 for his peanut allergy. We now own three epipens for any further accidental exposures.
