Food allergies are very common among infants, but after two years of age they become less common. This condition may present as itchiness and/or swelling of lips and tongue, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea and cramping, or hives and eczema. In some individuals, food allergies may be life threatening and result in closure of airways, fainting, and even death. Therefore, severe food allergies should be taken very seriously, and should receive prompt medical attention. Allergies to medications and stinging insects may also be life threatening, and require extreme caution and strict avoidance. Most individuals who are at risk of a life threatening allergic reaction need to carry an injectable form of epinephrine (adrenaline) with them at all times. These allergic reactions can result in death within minutes without treatment. Epinephrine, if injected immediately, can delay progression of an allergic reaction by approximately twenty minutes allowing time for ambulance transfer to a hospital.
