Anaphylaxis

Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening reaction to foods, such as milk, peanuts or tree nuts that narrows the airways and blocks breathing. Anaphylaxis requires an immediate shot of adrenaline (epinephrine) and medical attention. The most common symptoms of anaphylaxis are constriction of airways, hives, a sudden drop in blood pressure and facial flushing. (1)Infante S, Baeza ML, Calvo M, De Barrio M, Rubio M, Herrero T.
