    Last night I had a few squares of a bar of peanut and chocolate.
    Later my hands started itching and 3 lumps like hives appeared.
    showed it to the wife and she like I, thought it was a few bites or hives.

    Gave the wife a couple of squares of the bar and later she mentioned she too think she got a bite.

    Today the bites were still evident, although bigger, less irritating , finished off the chocolate, thinking it was bites, and right away got one of my forehead.

    The odds that both my wife and I developed a peanut allergy at our ages on the same night are too high, so anyone know anything about other type of allergies ?

    Bites ?

    Reminds me of the urban legend of the couple eating chocolates in the darkened cinema and that tasted weird and when they light came it turned out the the chocolates were infested by beetles or ants :eek:

    Possibly something else you touched ?

    I know, it was too late to make a doctors appointment at half five, will ring him in the morning.

    was just curious if anyone else had something similar.
