Unfortunately allergies or allergic reactions can occur at any time regardless how many times in the past you have been exposed to them. I agree that I doubt it was the probiotic. My guess would be that it is the Amoxicillin. You should be careful however before ingesting any nut products just to be on the safe side. I recommend you see an allergist to rule out the nut allergy because if it is the culprit for your hives then it's best to know about
it and be prepared for any future reoccurence.

Thanks for the replies.
I was thinking more on this and remembered that on Monday I had also ingested something else - perhaps for the first time. That was NASACORT AQ - a corticosteroid spray for fighting allergies/sinus congestion. I was given that when diagnosed with sinusitis the previous doctor visit and intending to use it after the antibiotic was done assuming it had killed off anything first. I only used it the one time Monday, and didn't bother the next day because I felt so much better nasal wise already and didn't need it to try another type of therapy (I have been on many different nose sprays in the past 20+ years in fighting allergies, probably tried them all, Nasonex, Rhinocort, I can't even remember them, probably this one too....hadn't had the need to use one in years though).
I used to see an Allergist regularly for my seasonal problems, even got allergy shots at one point, but haven't been back there in almost 10 years. If I could just make an appt there to ask about peanut allergy maybe I will do that but I'm afraid that is not how they work and instead they will insist on complete workup, new physical exams etc, and charge me mucho bucks.
I will have to look up possible side effects or allergic reactions to NasacortAQ too.
