Learn how to identify whether your sniffles and sneezes, aches and pains or scratchy throat and cough symptoms are the result of a cold, flu or allergies so that you can treat them—and, hopefully, beat them.
If you experience an itchy, tight throat after eating certain raw fruits, nuts, or vegetables, you might assume you have a food allergy. However, it’s possible that you are actually allergic to pollen-like compounds in the food.
Itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing—allergy symptoms are no fun! Whether you’re dealing with seasonal grass and pollen allergies, or reacting to a trigger such as animal dander, the effects are equally miserable.
If you have noticed your nose tends to run when you eat, you may be wondering what is causing it. If you figure out the cause, you can take action to improve your symptoms. There are many things that can cause a runny nose after eating, ranging from eating spicy food, to a food allergy, to seasonal allergies, to irritation.
