Food allergies can cause an overreaction by your immune system reaction that occurs soon after eating even a tiny amount of a certain food. Symptoms of food allergies can range from itching, swelling, and rashes to severe allergic reactions that include dizziness, trouble swallowing or breathing, abdominal cramps, vomiting and loss of consciousness.
