What You Need to Know About Food Allergies
by Terje Brooks
Anyone who has an allergic reaction to a food should find a way to make sure he
doesn't consume that food again in the future. Food allergy symptoms are a lot like
the symptoms of any allergy: runny nose, watery eyes, and skin issues like rashes
and hives. Other symptoms can be sinus pain, headaches, and ear pain that can be
so severe it is difficult to hear. There are some food allergies that are so severe
people go into anaphylactic shock. Their blood pressure drops and they have trouble
breathing. This can be fatal in some instances.

Figuring Out Your Food Allergies

Usually, it is not to hard to figure out your food allergies if you keep a food diary and
write down any type of adverse reaction you have to a particular food. Then, you
can narrow down the list of foods to find out which ones you need to avoid because
of allergies. Another way to figure out food allergies is to undergo a skin prick test.
This test helps doctors figure out what is causing an allergic reaction so there are no
serious health problems.

Sometimes foods that have many ingredients cause food allergies because of just
one ingredient. People can replace that product with another one that does not have
the ingredient they are allergic to. It is important to read food labels to look for
ingredients that cause food allergies. When dining out, though, this is harder because
you don't get a list of the ingredients.

Children who are allergic to certain foods may sometimes forget about the foods
they can't eat and that can be dangerous. When children eat food that causes an
allergic reaction, it can be a serious problem if the reaction is bad enough. In that
case, it is important to get them help right away. It's a good idea to have children
with food allergies wear a medical alert bracelet so they don't accidentally eat the
foods they are allergic to.

When people truly enjoy eating, it can
be hard to accept they've developed
food allergies and can no longer
enjoy the foods they love to eat.
Food allergy symptoms like swelling,
itching, and even potential death
make it too risky for people to eat
some of their favorite foods. People
can be allergic to a variety of foods
but most people are allergic to
peanuts or shellfish. Sometimes, an
allergy shows up when a person first
eats certain foods and the allergies
may develop out of the blue years
later.
