In fact, death can be the results if improper medical attention and care.  That is why it is important to seek medical attention the moment that you suspect you may have a food allergy.  As previously stated, hives are a good sign that you may.  You should seek the advice of a professional in the medical field before your symptoms are able escalate.

Once you have officially been diagnosed as having a food allergy, it is important that you let those around you know of your diagnosis.  This is particularly important if you regularly eat dinner at the homes of your friends or relatives.  Those individuals will need to know what not to include in their meals or they can make alternative arrangements for you.  This notification is also important in case you have a reaction.  As previously stated, those that are around you need to know the proper way to react, whether it be administering medication or calling for an ambulance.

As stated above, it is important that you seek medical attention if you suspect that you have an allergy to food.
