When my son was about 8 or so months old I put a little bit of peanut butter on my finger from my morning toast on his lip, with no problems.
A few months later I gave him a very small cracker with a small amount of PB on it. Once again, no problems.
Shortly after that I gave him half a slice of toast with PB and no problems again.
When I gave him a full slice of toast with PB ( approx 1tsp) about 5 min later his face got all blotchy and the blotchy-ness went away and his eyes became itchy.
I gave it some time and repeated the process, starting with the tiny bit on his lip working up to the full slice of toast. He was fine until the full slice of toast, the the blotchy face appeared again.
I have no family history of allergies however there are some environmental allergies on my husbands side.
I do have an appointment with my Dr. next week but I was wondering if anyone else has had any experiences like this.
