Food Allergy and Drug Allergy

Food allergy is an abnormal immune response or an unpleasant immune system reaction to food. Common Allergic foods involve cow's milk, peanuts, eggs, shellfish, fish, tree nuts, soy, wheat and rice. The symptoms may include itchiness, swelling of the tongue, vomiting, diarrhoea, hives, trouble breathing, or low blood pressure. This usually occurs within minutes to several hours of exposure. When the symptoms are severe, it is known as anaphylaxis. A drug allergy is the abnormal response of your immune system to a medication. Most people are allergic to Penicillin and other similar antibiotic drugs. Other common drugs found to cause allergic reactions include sulfa drugs, barbiturates, and anti-seizure drugs.

Symptoms include:

  • Skin rash
  • Itchy skin or eyes
  • Swelling in the mouth and throat
