In brief: Nuts are different

Peanuts and hazelnuts are not the same.
Peanuts are a legume and hazelnuts are tree nuts. If you are allergic to one, you will not necessarily be allergic to the other, but if you have several food allergies involving nuts, hazelnut and peanut should both be part of your skin test or blood test evaluation
