I am new here. I have not been officially diagnosed but I am certain I have developed a peanut allergy as an adult. I LOVE peanut butter but I don't eat it any more because I get more and more reactive to it.

1. rashes
2. swelling of the face and neck
3. feel sick to my stomach
4. vomiting

I am looking for an allergist in the west metro Denver area.

Welcome. You will find a lot of useful information here. My daughter was diagnosed last month, and I have found this site to be one of the most helpful.
You should definitely find an allergist, because most people with peanut allergy need an EpiPen in case of emergencies. You should also start reading labels and avoid anything that contains peanuts or was processed on shared equipment with peanut products. Trace amounts can be found in A LOT of processed foods.
I wish you luck. It is a life-altering experience, but manageable with the right information.
