Itchy mouth after eating nuts...suddenly aged 36? What next?

Looking for advice. I had a really itchy mouth and throat after eating a macadamia chocolate at Easter. Which was strange. Then this week, I’ve been eating my usual nut bars and had an itchy mouth with two different brands. The common ingredient was almonds. Debating whether this merits a call to the gp or should I just avoid almonds and macadamia nuts? What will the go say? Have just stopped breastfeeding recently so not sure if it’s somehow triggered this or it’s a coincidence?! Help! I don’t have any Other food allergies!

My grandma got hay-fever when pregnant aged 30, my dad got it aged 50.

I would want to get a test done to find out what the allergy is.

My dh suddenly had an allergic reaction to bananas at 19. Now, if he so much as smells one it's a trip to the hospital. Was fine with them before that day. Allergies are not to be played with so be careful

You need to call your gp. A nut allergy can suddenly worsen and have serious consequences.

I developed hay fever at age 28 while pg. Then developed an allergy to avocados in my 40s.

I would avoid all tree nuts until you can do allergy testing if I were you.

Bit late to the party but my sister developed anaphylaxis to nuts at 23. She'd eaten them before and then suddenly nearly died from eating one. Please take this seriously. I hope by now you have. Good luck thanks
