Thanks for that. Sorry I didn't make myself clearer ... but your response has pretty much answered my question. Most of the foods I'm allergic to I don't have an overly severe reaction to except for an upset tummy. Often my face will burn up for hours after eating something I shouldn't have so I feel really hot and uncomfortable. I had been wondering if allergy meds would help ease that when it happens. I am avoiding everything I'm allergic too but still get my days where some new aggravation will come along or I've missed spotting an ingredient in something I'm supposed to avoid. It does sound like for these lesser reactions, having something like benadryl in for emergencies would be handy ...
Thanks for your help
