About Food Allergies

Food AllergiesFood allergies arise when a person's immune system has an adverse reaction to certain proteins found in foods.


The severity of the reaction can vary quite considerably, ranging from skin rashes to life-threatening anaphylaxis, which can affect more than one body system.


Anaphylaxis can occur any time from 20 minutes to two hours after exposure.


Children are often prone to food allergies, although it is not uncommon for them to grow out of the condition before they go to school.


In some cases, people will inherit food allergies from their parents, with nuts, milk, soy and eggs causing around 90 per cent of reactions.


Experts at Terry White Chemists are equipped with the knowledge to help keep your food allergies under control, with tablets and creams available to sooth itchy skin from a minor reaction.
