Food Allergy Symptoms
Symptoms of food allergy often begin within minutes. Most symptoms occur within 2 hours of food ingestion. It is very rare, although possible, to experience a delayed reaction where symptoms occur more than several hours later. Food allergy symptoms may affect many parts of the body, including the gastrointestinal tract, skin, respiratory tract, and cardiovascular system. Signs of food allergy include:
- Respiratory: Shortness of breath, wheezing, cough, difficulty swallowing, tight throat, and tongue swelling
- Skin: Hives, itch, pale or blue skin coloring
- Gastrointestinal: stomach cramps, vomiting
- Cardiovascular: circulatory shock, weak pulse, dizziness or faintness
