My 1 year old allergic reaction?

  1. 0
    My husband gave our 1 year son a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and I think he is allergic! He has hives around his mouth, and they are starting to to migrate over her tummy. He ate the sandwich about 45 mins ago. How will I know if he need to go to the ER? Or what are the signs that it is a serve reaction? Or is there anything that I can give him? (he weighs about 35-40 lbs, at 1) THANKS

    Sorry, AllNurses can't give out medical advice per terms of service. Call your child's pediatrician ASAP or just go to an ED. This may be a matter of life and death, not a question for an internet forum. I do hope your girl is OK, but either CALL your pedi or GO to the ED!

    Please either take the child to the ED or call your Healthcare Provider. We cannot advise you in this potential emergency. We hope everything is o.k.
