How do you recognize a potential food allergy? Here are the signs:

- Skin reactions, i.e. hives, visible redness, itching, red ring around the mouth.

- Breathing problems, i.e. wheezing, coughing, breathing loudly.

- Anaphylactic shock, i.e. flushed appearance, sweating, trouble breathing, vomiting,

It is important to take the next step and get medical advice if you or a loved one has
the signs of a food allergy. Getting tested so you know ahead of time exactly what it
is that you are allergic to can also help avoid a potential life threatening situation.
