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
Completely different: All ige-medited food allergies have the same symptoms, oral itching and hives if ingestion, progressing to anaphylaxis if large volume ingestion. Gluten intolerance in celiac disease causes an inflammatory bowel disease and in about 15% a blistering rash called dermatitis herpetiformis. ...Read more
Cedar.: Cedar symptoms are the same as any other inhalent allergy. If you are asthmatic, it may cause asthma, it may cause nasal or eye allergies just like ragweed. It does not cause a fever unless there is a complication. Sometimes cedar allergic patients have problems with other similar trees such as christmas boughs or trees.A tip off is that it affects patients in the winter months. ...Read more
The usual culprits: The causes of allergy are many but the symptoms are predictable & limited. Hives, swelling of hands, feet, eyelids & lips called angioedema, breathing issues due to windpipe swelling or asthma & GI symptoms like nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain & diarrhea. Since Erythromycin commonly causes GI symptoms it's hard to tell if this is allergy or intolerance when skin or breathing symptoms are absent. ...Read more
Gluten sensitivities: Wheat or gluten sensitivities include a wide spectrum of presentations from well-defined celiac disease to other vaguely defined conditions like ibs-like symptoms, and problems outside of the gut like gluten ataxia or peripheral neuropathy. Since it is complicated, a good history taken by your physician with supporting tests might me helpful to tell if you have sensitivities or allergy to wheat. ...Read more

Nuts are different: Peanuts and hazelnuts are not the same. Peanuts are a legume and hazelnuts are tree nuts. If you are allergic to one, you will not necessarily be allergic to the other, but if you have several food allergies involving nuts, hazelnut and peanut should both be part of your skin test or blood test evaluation ...Read more
Probably not: Honey has been anecdotally reported to lessen symptoms in people with seasonal allergies. But these results haven't been consistently duplicated in clinical studies. Still the idea isn't so far-fetched. Honey has been studied as a cough suppressant and may have anti-inflammatory effects. In addition, some experts point out that honey can contain traces of flower pollen — an allergen. And one treatment for allergies is repeated exposure to small amounts of allergens. For now, however, it appears that honey may just be a sweet placebo. But don't let that stop you from using it in food and beverages. Just don't give honey to children younger than 1 year because of the risk of infant botulism, a rare but serious form of food poisoning. Ozone air purifiers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Just like any other: Food allergy symptoms vary ranging from hives, swelling, nasal congestion and even asthma. When severe, it leads to anaphylaxis (a life-threatening reaction).

Allergy symptoms: Allergies can cause a large variety of symptoms: most common is hay fever (molds, dust, pollen) with watery runny nose, watery eyes & itching, nasal itch, sneezing, and congestion. Plant/tree/grass allergies can cause eczema, a skin rash, as can food allergies. Aerosolized allergens (pet dander, pollen, etc.) can cause asthma with chest tightness and wheezing. ...Read more
Trees, grass, weeds: Pollen are fertilizing grains produced by plants for propagation. Some plants use the wind to help in pollination producing massive quantities of pollen that become airborne; these include trees, grasses, and weeds. If you are prone to allergies, these plants can cause symptoms during certain seasons. Plants that make pretty, fragrant flowers attract insects for propagation & don't cause allergies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

4yo with peanut & egg allergy & has eczema. He says his chest hurt & itchy & he breath quite loud, is this one of the asthma symptoms?
See a doc: These symptoms could be the sign of a serious allergic reaction if the child accidentally ate one of the foods s/he is allergic to. It could be asthma, but the itchy chest does not match this diagnosis, unless that is the way the toddler is describing "shortness of breath". Seek medical assistance immediately... Call your pediatrician. ...Read more
Anaphylaxis: Peanut and nuts tend to cause the most severe food allergic reactions called anaphylaxis. Death is typically either from shock (loss of blood pressure) or from edema/swelling of the larynx (throat) leading to asphyxiation. An allergist can assist a patient in a management plan to decrease the risk of having a severe reaction to peanuts. ...Read more
Yes: It's not clear why, but a person can develop peanut allergy as a child, teen or adult. Even if a person has tolerated peanuts for years, a peanut allergy can develop. It's been found now that avoiding peanut in the diet of infants/children for the first few years will not prevent the development of peanut allergy. Something about "roasted" peanuts make them more allergenic than boiled or fried. ...Read more
No: A peanut allergy could develop at any time whether peanuts are being eaten intermittently or even regularly. It's not exactly clear why peanut allergies develop, but it does require 1) exposure ie eating peanuts, 2) sensitization--the body's immune system see the peanut protein as "foreign" and 3) re-exposure---that's when symptoms occur. ...Read more
Proteins: Some foods like peanuts, that cause more severe reactions more often than other common allergenic foods, have proteins in them that are more heat and acid stable, so they are not digested completely before being absorbed by the body and this is more likely to lead to IgE antibody production which causes allergies. ...Read more

I do not have no allergies but could i just get allergic to something i'm no allergic to peanuts but could i get allergic to it how?
Anaphylaxis: The most serious reaction to peanut is called anaphylaxis. While many allergic reactions remain localized in your skin or nose or mouth, in anaphylaxis, your entire body is involved. This can cause a drop in blood pressure or swelling in the throat that can be fatal. Epinephrine acts to raise your blood pressure and this is how it saves lives in anaphylaxis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
