I'm allergic - but to what?

Posting for advice. Last night I went out for a Thai meal with a friend. Lovely meal, but when I got home I found I was incredibly itchy and a had a rash (like hives) on my torso, legs and arms. My eyes also felt prickly and I felt very hot. I slept really badly.

Today I feel itchy but the rash has subsided and my eyes are fine.

I don't know what I could have reacted to. Satay/peanut sauce - nuts? Prawns (never been a problem before and I eat them regularly?). Garlic? - I try and avoid too much garlic as it gives me stomach pain but I've never had this sort of reaction before. I vaguely remember having a similar reaction after a meal out a few months ago but can't remember where I went or what I ate and it was less severe.

Any advice welcome. Should I be worried and is there anything I should do next? I don't have any allergies that I'm aware of but asthma and allergies do run in my family - my brother developed asthma as an adult.

Thank you!
