An allergic response is when a personâ€™s body reacts to certain foods in such a way that the body employs an immune system response. This is because it â€œbelievesâ€ the food as harmful. Classic food allergy symptoms can occur in the digestive system, respiratory system, or other areas of the body. Some of the most common food allergy responses include a tingling sensation in the mouth, vomiting, difficulty breathing, abdominal cramps and diarrhea, swelling of the tongue and throat and can progress to a drop in blood pressure, loss of consciousness and even death. With food allergy symptoms sometimes showing within minutes of exposure that the food, this can be dangerous, especially for younger kids, or people with special needs.
Severe food allergy reactions can result in anaphylaxis, the extreme of an allergic reaction which can mean death. It can involve any or all of the areas of the body including, the respiratory system, skin, digestive and gastrointestinal system and the cardiovascular system. In such cases, the use of epinephrine is necessary. Epinephrine is also known as adrenaline. It is available by prescription and can be self-administered, such as the Twinject and the EpiPen.
