Leer las etiquetas de los alimentos

Entre las reacciones alérgicas a ciertos alimentos están la urticaria difusa, la voz ronca, el jadeo y, en las reacciones severas, la baja presión arterial y el cierre de la tráquea. Los medicamentos como los antihistamínicos y las cremas para la piel pueden proporcionar algún alivio para la comezón y el sarpullido, pero la mejor forma de prevenir futuras reacciones alérgicas es evitar, en primer lugar, el alimento causante. La lectura de las etiquetas que contiene la mayoría de los productos es una forma útil de hallar el alimento que la persona desea evitar.
