false food allergy ?
does anyone have any info on this?
false food allergy is caused by foods that tigger the mast cells directly.
The symptoms of histamine posioning are, nausea, diarrhoea, skin rashes , flushing and headaches. These symptoms clear up after 12 hours.
My problem? William had a reaction last night to a yeast spread product,( bovril which I used to make gravy , very small amount used !), instant reaction, but only symptoms shown are hives around mouth, and throat constricting , becoming hard to swollow.
Thankfully priton worked,(epi-pens at the ready!!!) but am aware that this is not good news. had a very worrying evening, but he seems OK today(just tired) and back to school.
i would like to read up on this aspect of allergy , which I had previously thought was not life threatening, in fact thought it was an intolerance type of food problem !
Any links would be gratefully recieved!!!
