Allergy Symptoms
I had eczema and was nauseous for years. After Dr. Mitchell tested me, he found I have a wheat allergy. I stopped eating it, and my symptoms are gone! I feel great.

Allergy Symptoms

Though sneezing and itchy eyes are hallmarks of allergies, allergy symptoms run the gamut and may not be classic. You may suffer from headaches, a sore throat, eczema, hives, stomach aches, diarrhea, or asthma.  Many experts believe that some patients are sensitive, not allergic, to certain substances, and may have even subtler symptoms like mood disturbances, hyperactivity, itchy skin (that’s not allergic eczema), headaches and joint pain.

Allergy symptoms can be categorized as mild, moderate, or severe.

Mild Allergy Symptoms

Usually contained in one area of the body

  • Rash
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Eczema

Moderate Allergy Symptoms

Moderate allergic reactions can include symptoms that spread to other parts of the body and may include:

  • Itchiness
  • Hives
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chronic coughing and throat clearing

Severe Allergy Symptoms (Anaphylaxis)

Anaphylaxis is a rare, life-threatening emergency. The body’s response to the allergen is sudden and it affects the entire body. Symptoms may begin with sudden itching of the eyes or face, and within minutes progress to more serious symptoms, including:

  • Inflammation and swelling in the throat causing difficulty breathing
  • Severe asthma symptoms
  • Abdominal pain
  • Cramps
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Mental confusion or dizziness
