Peanut allergy

I get a lo of mucous in my throat when I eat peanut butter.  Is this an allergy?  The mucous  is hard to cough up and stays. There for a long time. I keep clearing my throat. Thank you.

Yes, excess mucous can be a sign of peanut allergy.  Peanut allergy can also cause worsening of asthma.

This allergy is more prevalent in children than adults and you might want to avoid peanut butter for a few years.

Good luck

I am not sure if it's an allergy because if it were an allergy, you would have a more acute and serious reaction. It could be a sensitivity. Head to the doctor and find out.
