Food allergies may cause symptoms in your skin, stomach, airways, eyes, or entire body. Some of the signs of food allergy are:
Skin Reactions
Food allergies can cause rashes, such as:
• Hives: Raised red welts that move around the body
• Eczema: A scaly, itchy rash that may blister or peel

Stomach/GI Symptoms
Food allergies may cause stomach or intestinal symptoms, such as:
• Nausea: Upset stomach, feeling that you may throw up
• Abdominal pain: Pain in your stomach or abdominal area
• Vomiting: Throwing up
• Diarrhea: Loose, watery stool, more than three times a day
