Peanut allergy?

Ds2 (12 mo) has previously had a small reaction to peanut butter, just red hives around his mouth, but he didn't actually eat any.
I took him to see the gp about his allergies as he has had simelar reactions to egg(in raw state- like omelet he's ok with cake etc) *some cheese, and tuna.
The gp advised to avoid these for the time being, saying he will probably out grow the cheese and egg allergy but maybe not the peanut.
Anyway, without thinking about it I had a peanut butter sandwich, and at 1am this morning (about half an hour after I fed him)DS2 broke out in hives around his tummy, was very itchy and uncomfortable.
I gave him piriton and took him to OOH DR. he said it was more than likely from his cold that he has had (mostly over it now) but I can't help but think that it's from the peanut butter I had earlier in the day?
Can anyone shed any light on this? Is his reaction going to get worse, or will it stay at hives? Will he possibly out grow it in time?

I would go and see another doctor if I were you. There is an allergy board on MN with people on with lots of knowledge. My dd has a peanut allergy but I'm not in the uk so it's a bit different.

My dd gets hives too and that's how we found out she was allergic. Our GP sent her for a skin prick test.

Thank you savoy, I'll have a look for the allergy board and repost there
