In brief: Yes
Serious allergy to peanut develops very quickly.
Children ca have swelling of face, shortness of breath, itching of skin and tingling and numbness in the back of the throat.

In brief: Peanut allergy
Usually right away, however at times a reaction can be delayed and come on later. If you suspect a peanut allergy it is vital for you to consult with your doctor and be referred to an allergist for treatment.
