Exercise Induced Anaphylaxis
Exercise-induced anaphylaxis symptoms can manifest at any point during physical activity and may impact various bodily systems, including the skin, heart, and lungs. These symptoms encompass coughing, breathing difficulties, wheezing, as well as manifestations like flushing, widespread itching, facial swelling, hives, or the sensation of throat constriction.
To pinpoint the underlying triggers of anaphylaxis, allergists undertake a comprehensive examination. The causative factors could range from medication, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or alcohol, to specific foods ingested prior to exercise. Remarkably, some individuals may even encounter exercise-induced anaphylaxis following the consumption of particular foods. Notable among the common food triggers for this condition are alcohol, apples, beef, eggs, fish, legumes, milk, mushrooms, nuts, peaches, pork, shellfish, soy, tomatoes, and wheat or wheat protein.
