Allergy Tip of the Day:

Symptoms of Food Allergy
Reactions to foods can vary. Symptoms include urticaria (hives), angioedema (swelling), throat clearing, wheezing, vomiting, cramping, diarrhea, hypotension (low blood pressure) and death. Of the reported cases of near fatal and fatal anaphylaxis to peanut, delay in the use of injectable epinephrine was the number one cause for the fatal outcome. It is critical that patients with food allergy carry injectable epinephrine and that they are taught in the allergist’s office how to use it correctly. Since delayed reactions can occur, patients who use their epinephrine should proceed to their local emergency room for observation.
