Discuss: Discuss with a physician or care-giver practiced in recognizing allergic reaction. True immune mediated allergy is often confused with pharmacological side effects from medication or non-allergic food intolerance. Also, there are some typical patterns for rash associated with allergy, but many types of rash that are non-allergic.
