Could blue lips and nail beds be an allergic reaction to peanuts?

If severe: Blue lips and nail beds suggests cyanosis, which could be signs of a severe allergic reaction. If this were the case, one would be severely ill with difficulty breathing and require immediate medical attention. If these were the only symptoms, further evaluation would be necessary to assess for another explanation.
