(HealthDay News) -- Food allergy reactions range from mild to
life-threatening, depending on the person.
The Nemours Foundation says common warning signs of a milder
allergic reaction to food may include:
A tight feeling in the throat, or a hoarse voice.
Coughing and wheezing.
Nausea, vomiting or stomach pain.
Hives or skin rash.
A tingling sensation on the lips or tongue.
In more serious cases, food allergy may cause a severe reaction
called anaphylaxis, which may cause a person's breathing pathways
to narrow, blood pressure to drop, and tongue to swell. This should
be treated as a life-threatening medical emergency.
