More than 200,000 times the emergency rooms are being visited every year because of allergic reactions to various foods.
About 15 million people in the U.S. have some form of allergy to food. Their symptoms can vary from itching in the mouth to potentially lethal anaphylaxis.

Among other signs of an allergic reaction are breathing issues, rashes, circulation problems and intestinal discomfort.

If you aren’t quite sure what might be causing an allergic reaction, take a look at these 6 foods listed below in this article.

  • Eggs
  • Egg allergy is the second most common allergy to food in children, but it is also the one that is often outgrown. Usually people are allergic only to the egg whites – since this is where the protein is – but must avoid eggs completely since the whites and yolks cannot be perfectly separated.


    1. Cow’s milk

    This is the most common allergic reaction in young children. Cow’s milk contains 20 ingredients that can cause allergic reactions, and proteins from cow’s milk are usually the first foreign proteins with which the child comes into contact. Moreover, cow milk contains too much protein and minerals, which burdens the still undeveloped kidneys of the child, and on the other hand, there are too few essential fatty acids, iron, vitamins, selenium and iodine, important for proper growth and development.
