Weird reaction.......Not sure the why...

Well we got home from trick or treating. I ate a reeses peanut butter cup. My front inside lip swelled. I went numb in my lips and cheeks. I am NOT allergic to peanut butter. Have eaten many reeses through the years. I ended up taking benedryl. Still a few hours later my front lip area is numb. The swelling had come down. My thoughts are I have either developed an allergic reaction the the peanut butter cup or someone put something in it. What do you think could have caused this? Crazy!!!

  • sounds to me like you developed a reaction , it does happened often to many people. so call your doctor and have them check it out and while you wait for an answer stay away from chocolate and peanuts.

  • Maybe call your doctor (most of them have an emergency number) and see what they say.

  • I would talk with your Dr. asap and check the other candy you received to make sure it wasn't tampered with.

  • If the Benadryl didn't help much, I will monitor the lip a few more hrs, and if it still numb, make an apt with your dr...
