When we ingest an article of food that we are allergic to, our bodies identify it as a danger and trigger a protective response to it. The most common foods that cause allergic reactions are eggs, milk, nuts, fish, wheat and soy. If you are allergic to any kind of food, you will exhibit many different symptoms including vomiting, hives, shortness of breath or wheezing, swollen tongue, dizziness or anaphylaxis, which can be life threatening.
Pet allergies are pretty common. If you are around or near dogs or cats and you start sneezing, your nose becomes stuffy, develop itchy, watery eyes or hives, you most are allergic to these pets. They are easily treated with antihistamines, allergy shots or just simply avoiding them. But when it comes to insect stings like bees or wasps, it can be a matter of life or death. The less severe stings can result in swelling of the area while more severe can cause anaphylactic shock.
It is hard to know if you are allergic to a medicine before you take it unless you are tested before using the medication. There are lots of people that are allergic to penicillin and other antibiotics and even over-the-counter drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen. Like the other allergies, you will see hives or skin rashes, itching, swelling, vomiting, feel dizzy or go into anaphylactic shock.
