Symptoms of anaphylaxis

Posted on May 27, 2015 10:24 am under Product Liability

Anaphylaxis is a serious, sometimes life-threatening medical emergency caused by the body’s reaction to certain allergens. It can occur within minutes after exposure. If left untreated, anaphylaxis may lead to anaphylactic shock, a condition where your blood pressure is dangerously low, and may result in multiple organ damage or even ultimately death.

Signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis include:

  • Skin irritation, such as itching, redness, and/or rash
  • Lump in the throat, which sometimes gives you a feeling of airway constriction
  • Weak and rapid pulse
  • Dizziness, fainting, nausea, vomiting
  • Sometimes, diarrhea

Anaphylaxis can sometimes result from undeclared ingredients in food products with incorrect labeling.
