Understanding Skin Prick Testing

Have you ever seen a person in a restaurant or public place eat something and then start having a serious allergic reaction? You might have even heard someone shout for an EpiPen. This is what is known as anaphylaxis; it occurs when you ingest food or medication that you are allergic to. Such an allergic reaction can lead to swelling of your tongue and throat that can lead to suffocation. You can even break out in hives or rashes on different areas of your body, especially your face, neck, arms, chest and back.
