(HealthDay News) -- From hives and itchiness to anaphylaxis, an allergic reaction to nuts can manifest itself in many ways, says the University of Rochester.
If you are living with a nut allergy, the school suggests:
- When grocery shopping, check every item's food label for nuts.
- Tell all restaurants and servers about your food allergy.
- Always keep medicine handy. Make sure you understand when and how to use it.
- Work with your healthcare provider to create a plan in case of an emergency.
