A food allergy is an abnormal response that occurs in our body because our immune system makes a certain reaction to certain food. Shrimps, milk, strawberries and tomatoes are some examples of food that can cause allergies. Besides consuming certain food, food allergies can come from heredity. Generally, people with food allergies have the same problem with another family member. To prevent a reaction, they have to avoid eating the food that can trigger the allergies. Food allergy treatment is needed when the allergies become more severe or fatal.

The food allergy treatment can be done through strict diet avoidance. Once you get a food allergy of certain food, the food must be omitted from your diet list. It means that you are very sensitive with that food. Your immune system is no longer active to protect your body from the substance contained by the food. When you feel that your allergy is getting more serious, you have to be prepared with anaphylactic reaction. Here you have to wear medical alert bracelets or necklaces stating that you have a certain food allergy. In another way, you have to bring an adrenalin syringe in case the reaction happens anytime.

Antihistamines also can be treated as the food allergy treatment. It can be used to reduce food allergy symptoms like sneezing and runny nose. Bronchodilators can be used to relieve asthma. These treatments are taken to cure the person who accidentally ingested a certain allergic food.
