Hi sometimes when I eat certain food I get ulcers / hive things in my throat they go once I have a drink so I thought nothing off it I rarely eat peanuts I try to avoid all the time mostly because either have anxie type and not liked peanuts either but tonight I had peanut m&ms about 5 minutes after finishing half the packet I started to have a itchy arm not thinking anything of it watching the film when I realised I had hives on top and bottom of arm this did cause my anxoety to go mad because my nose and face started itching then my legs prickling and also my neck itching I haven't itches anywhere though I'm too scared too my throat feels full of phelm and I can't clear it ad my tounge feels bigger again maybe anxiety because my tounge appears normal I still have the hives it's been around 15 minutes and I'm shaking because I don't have a clue wht going on or if this is sign of a allergic reaction or could it be coinsidence ??

My partner is working until late tonight and I have the kids I'm scared if something happens my little ones will witness it I should of really posted this on anxiety forum but you guys will probably know about more about this then them??

    I hope this has cleared now, but take some Antihestamin, like Piriton or Benedryl that will get rid of this allergy

    My husband got hives some years ago. He had, had an operation and was given the strong drug Codine and came out in hives all over his chest just befor bed. He was sick then, and I ran to the Piriton, cleared it up straight away before our eyes. We have not told his doctor yet, but it will have to go on his doctors notes, Alergic to Codine.
