(HealthDay News) -- If you've been diagnosed with a food allergy, it is important to develop a food allergy plan so you and others know what to do in an emergency.
Milder symptoms of food allergy include itching, sneezing, hives or rashes. More severe symptoms, such as trouble breathing or swallowing, may indicate a life-threatening emergency, the Food Allergy Research and Education website says.
Here are the site's suggestions to help prevent dangerous reactions:
- Avoid all problem foods.
- Carry your medication at all times.
- Take your medication at the first sign of a reaction.
- Go to an emergency room for follow-up treatment if you have a severe reaction.
- Consider wearing an emergency medical identification bracelet.
