I'm going to try giving my little boy peanut butter for the first time. No one in either of our families has any known food allergies, except for a cousin with a mild citric acid allergy. My question is, if someone has an allergic reaction to peanut butter, what are the symptoms, and how soon after eating the peanut butter will the reaction occur?Answer Question
Symptoms of an allergic reaction include any, some, or many of these: Skin: redness, itching, swelling, blistering, weeping, crusting, rash, eruptions, or hives (itchy bumps or welts) Lungs: wheezing, tightness, cough, or shortness of breath Head: swelling of the face, eyelids, lips, tongue, or throat; headache Nose: stuffy nose, runny nose (clear, thin discharge), sneezing Eyes: red (bloodshot), itchy, swollen, or watery Stomach: pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or bloody diarrhea. Anaphylaxis: any combination of allergic symptoms that is rapid, or sudden, and potentially life-threatening. Call an ambulance immediately if you suspect anaphylaxis.

The look and feel of an allergic reaction depends on the body part involved and the severity of the reaction. Some reactions affect many areas, while others affect just one area. Reactions to the same allergen vary by individual, so you won't know how somebody is going to react to something or how long it will take for them to react to it until it actually happens.
