How to Recognize the Signs of Food Allergy

VIEWS: 64 PAGES: 1

									Food allergy reactions range from mild to life-threatening, depending on the person.

Common warning signs of a milder allergic reaction to food may include:

A tight feeling in the throat, or a hoarse voice.
Coughing and wheezing.
Nausea, vomiting or stomach pain.
Diarrhea.
Hives or skin rash.
A tingling sensation on the lips or tongue.
Runny nose.


In more serious cases, food allergy may cause a severe reaction called anaphylaxis, which
may cause a person's breathing pathways to narrow, blood pressure to drop, and tongue to
swell. This should be treated as a life-threatening medical emergency.
