See an allergist: who would take careful history, might perform some tests, either blood tests or skin tests, check aaaai.org or acaai.org for an allergist in your area, if you are at high risk of exposure and not sure what to do till you see an allergist, better keep an epinephrine pen handy, ask your doctor about it, gooluck
