This may seem a bit silly, but the past two times I have eaten nuts the back of my throat has been itching, and the area around my mouth, nothing too serious... I get this with fish (but to a much larger extent), and I am allergic to fish. The thing is though, once it was peanuts, then the other time it was almonds, and from what I know, are not even from the same family, and therefore not related at all. Do you think that I could possibly be developing an allergy to nuts? Do nut allergies even develop at this age (I'm 18)?
I am finding this rather strange, because I have never had any problems with nuts. Anyway, what I am also wondering is, if you do think I may be developing a nut allergy, should I by all means avoid it until I have gotten anything confirmed, or would it not be too big of a deal, as so far I have only had a bit of an itch?
