Food allergy is a simple reaction to the immune system which happens after eating a particular kind of food. However, the food that causes allergy often shows some symptoms which we ignore, if we detect those signs then the allergy can be prevented. Here are some symptoms:

  • Diarrhea
  • Acne
  • Headache
  • Eczema
  • Stomach ache
  • Coughing
  • Mucus throat
  • Body ache
