Am I allergic to cashews?

Patient

Q: Hi, my names Heather, I'm an 18 year old female an I have small itchy bumps on top of my left hand that are now spreading to my right hand. The itchiness started on my anus and I thought I had hemroids so I used Preparation H but then the itch spread to my butt crack. I then noticed the roof of my mouth had small itchy bumps on it and now the tops on my hand have the same thing. I would like to know if this could possibly be a allergic reaction? I've put calamine lotion on my bum and hands which seems to help the itchiness a little. The only thing I can think of that I've ate is alot of Planters cashews. Thanks

Doctor
