Hi, i suffered my 1st anaphalaxis reaction to lemon a yr ago and was given an epi pen. in the past three months despite being careful with my food i have inadvertantly touched a product that contains lemon or a lemon derivitive.
i now have to use an epi pen then go to hospital fro hydrocortazone and anti histermine injectionsand nebulizers and afterwards course of steroids for a week. this reaction is growing more servere with each attack. the symptoms are within minutes of contact with lemon and include tachacardia, vomiting, rash swollen face, numb lips, tingling tongue, metalic taste in mouth, diahoria
are there any other people who have this allergic reation to lemons or anyone who understands what causes this. im waiting to see an immunologist.
