Thanks for your information, albeit short and very specific.
Noted that the age is 25 and is extremely paranoid about serious food allergies and anaphylaxis.
I would like to know a few more details fr me to assist you the best:
- Is this the problem with you or someone else as?
- Since when is this problem perceived?
- Any incidence of food allergy or anaphylaxis seen?
- Related to medical profession?
- Any other problems, symptoms, incidences or anything you would like to share?
Allergy is body's reaction to say no to a particular thing called allergen.
This (allergen) can be ''anything under the sun including the sun''. This is the medical dictum and is practical.
Out of all the things surrounding us, foods are the small part of the allergens we are exposed to.
The food allergy can exhibit very easily. Locally as nausea, vomiting or loose stools. Both the activities are body's mechanism to throw out the thing that it fells is not suitable to it and this happens pretty fast so that the general effects on the body are not exhibited or are mild enough not to cause any serious effects.
The general effects are seen if the part of the allergens are swallowed and can exhibit as rash, redness of skin, itching or urticaria. This again is body's defense mechanism to cordon off the allergens.
It is only when the dose of allergen is very high or is very toxic, highly allergic in nature then only it may exhibit serious problem.
Hence there is no need to worry about any serious side effects as the body is capable of handling such loads and hence are not seen in day-to-day practice.
Anaphylaxis: This is the extreme manifestation of the allergic reaction wherein the body's mechanism do not get sufficient strength or time to take action or when the body is already sensitized and hence the next fight between an allergen and body's already existing antibodies cause such a severe reaction.
This can not occur if you know the allergen and you avoid it.
Anaphylaxis again is very very rare and usually used to be seen only with medicines like penicillin or so.
So why would you or anyone have it unless the care is not taken.
Hence stop thinking about anaphylaxis.
Actually not seen any anaphylaxis in practical life that caused death or so.
I hope this answer helps you.
