Food allergy is a reaction after eating a specific type of food. Many children are born with allergies and outgrow them the same as they get older. Food allergies can lead to health problems such as digestive disorders, hives, swollen airways, etc.
When you have a food allergy, in such cases, your immune system identifies a specific type of food or any substance in food as harmful; thereby, it forces the immune system to release antibodies to balance out the toxic substance in the body. Food allergies can also trigger other reactions such as itchy eyes, red eyes, redness, dry throat, nausea, diarrhea, labored breathing, and many more.
