Food allergies range from very mild to life-threatening. The mildest symptoms are vague itchiness in the mouth and throat. Other mild to moderate symptoms:
general itchiness hives or rash, sometimes all over body runny/itchy nose and eyes recurrent earaches nausea and vomiting diarrhea
Some foods can cause a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction. The mouth, throat, and bronchial tubes swell enough to impede breathing. The person may wheeze or faint. Often there are generalized hives and/or swollen face. This is an emergency!! As anyone would, call your doctor or 911! For breathing trouble or loss of consciousness, call 911 immediately.
One severe allergic reaction to food puts you at risk for more. Discuss with your doctor what to do for repeat reactions.
Common food allergens:
peanuts: This is often life-threatening. Call a doctor for ANY reactions to peanut products! (Peanuts can be a hidden ingredient in a number of foods.) soy -- again can be a hidden ingredient in a number of foods. fish and/or shellfish; in some people, these reactions can be severe, ranging from extreme nausea to breathing difficulties. Watch carefully and call 911 for any breathing problems. berries peppers milk proteins (less common than you'd think -- most people are intolerant not allergic). wheat (and gluten), as well as some other grains (corn, rye) eggs many reactions have unknown cause!
Interestingly, some common food proteins are similar enough to ragweed to cause reactions in sensitive people. These include bananas and melons.
Allergic reactions may progress from mild to severe, so keep track of any reactions.
Food allergies may be amount-sensitive. That is, you don't feel the reaction until you've ingested a certain amount; however, severe reactions may occur with ANY tiny amount of allergen. This is especially true of peanut allergies.
A number of people find that the most likely food to cause a problem is one that you eat the most frequently. In fact, some people report that they have an almost addictive craving for that food. The craving may be more intense if you have had the food in the past day or so. The more of it you have, the more intense the craving becomes. This can be a clue as to the foods to suspect in your initial search for allergens. Common foods to think about are milk (and milk products), wheat (and wheat products), corn (and corn products), and eggs. These are common foods in Western diets to which many people are allergic.
After every time I eat any wheat products, I get very bloated in the stomach, and feel generally unwell???
