Symptoms of a food allergy can range from mild to severe. A mild reaction may cause more severe symptoms at another time.

 

On top of those symptoms mentioned above, other mild symptoms include itching of eyes, flushing, hives or eczema. Severe reactions manifest as throat tightness, breathing difficulties, wheezing,giddiness, weak pulse, faintness or loss of consciousness.

 

Allergic symptoms  appear within minutes to 2 hours after ingestion. Common source of food allergy in Singapore include fish and shellfish, peanuts, eggs and cow’s milk.
