Food allergy: Allergy to any food, in this case mushroom will cause symptoms of oral itching, lip or tongue swelling, hives, breathing difficulty and/or throat closure etc. Food allergy is diagnosed with clinical history followed by skin or blood test and that information helps establish the diagnosis and severity of the allergy.
Not common: Mushroom allergy is rare. But if allergic, avoid them all.See 1 more doctor answer
Stereotypical: Food allergy symptoms are the same regardless of cause. Gi: nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, tongue swelling. Skin: hives, swelling of hands, feet, lips, eyelids, face, tongue; sometimes eczema. Respiratory: difficulty breathing due to vocal cord swelling or asthma; sometimes runny nose. Cardiovascular: dizzy, sense of doom, loss of consciousness, shock, death. Combinations? That's anaphylaxis.
Anaphylaxis perhaps: That's the name for severe allergic reactions. Any reaction that is very severe can progress to life-threatening symptoms like throat closing, hoarseness, chest tightness, asthma, or circulatory collapse (shock). Skin manifestations like hives are not usually dangerous; just uncomfortable and unsightly.
Yes: Anyone that has had immediate allergic symptoms from ingestion to a food must avoid the food as much as possible and carry epi in case of accidental exposure.
From mushroom allergy I have got signs of anaphylaxis, which is going away. I prefer not to use any medical intervention. Will it heal by itself?
911: You don't want to take chances with potentially life threatening anaphylaxis. Please rush to the emergency room & call 911
Do I have a allergy to shellfish? When I eat oysters/scallops, I get a horrible stomachache right after then always have upset stomach /diarrhea later
Possibly: Possibly an allergy, but if the oysters are raw then infectious diarrhea might be to blame. Good luck.
Yes: Facial sweelling can be a component of an allergic reaction.
Don't: That kind of stuff is like putting sand into the tank of your car!
Depends: Any allergen can cause a range of symptoms from mild to severe and life threatening. Cat would be included in that as well. Cats can cause mild nasal congestion to severe persistent asthma that can be life threatening. If you are having symptoms around a cat talk with you pcp or allergist. There are good treatment options available to help you.See 1 more doctor answer
Common: Allergic rhinitis including allergy to dogs is common, affecting 10-30% of people in the U.S. Rates seems to be increasing over time, particularly in urban areas. These statistic include all allergy sufferers (trees, grass, weeds, dust mites, molds, cats, dogs, etc). I don't have rates for dog allergy sufferers specifically.
Careful: Some allergy medications such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and zyrtec are sedating and together may be too sedating to function. Mixing allergy medications is best prescribed under the supervision of an allergist to avoid side effects. It depends what you are trying to treat, usually one second generation antihistamine is enough to treat nasal allergies. Other medications can be used for other symptoms.
Allergies: Depends how bad they are, you can take over the counter antihistamines and if they don't provide with relief, you need to start with your primary doctor for more prescription medications, such as nasal sprays and if these don't help, you need to see an allergist and they can advise you what else to do.
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
