Signs and symptoms of a food allergy may take a few minutes or hours to appear. • Swelling and itching of the mouth and throat. • Abdominal (belly) pain or cramping. • Full feeling in your abdomen and gas. • Diarrhea (loose stools). • Nausea (feeling sick) and vomiting (throwing up). • Skin rash with hives (red, raised areas of skin) and itching. • Coughing, wheezing and difficulty breathing. • Food allergies can be life threatening. If you have a severe food allergy, you may have a very dangerous reaction called anaphylaxis (an-ah-fi-LAK-sis). You may first feel warm and flushed, have a tingling feeling in your mouth or a red, itchy rash. You may feel lightheaded, have difficulty breathing, have wheezing, feel a tightness in your throat, and have a very fast heartbeat. These symptoms usually appear within a few minutes to two hours of eating a food. If this happens, call 911 or O (operator) for medical help. Do not try to drive yourself to a hospital.
