PEANUTS ALERGY AND SYMPTOMS
OF PEANUTS ALERGIES
When the peanut is ingested by a person who is already having
food alergy, his body strangely reacts to the nut as if it is
really injurious and the immune system of his body immediately
starts creating the typical chemicals meant for fighting out he
infections - antibodies aiming to guard the body from reactions
against the peanuts. Such antibodies develop mast cells for
discharging chemicals like histamine into the blood stream which
in turn generates symptoms in the person’s eyes, nose, throat,
lungs, skin or gastrointestinal tract.
The symptoms may include: runny nose, itchy skin rashes like
hives as well as scratchy tongue or lips. Some more signs may
also be noticed such as: tightness in throat, husky voice,
wheezing cough, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain and diarrhoea.
