What are usual symptoms of food allergies that will lead to asthma?

ANSWER

In most people, the usual symptoms of food allergies are hives, rash, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. If you have food allergies that trigger symptoms of an asthma attack, you will likely experience these allergy symptoms, followed by coughing and wheezing. And if not caught quickly, you may get anaphylaxis, a dangerous swelling in the throat that can cut off your breathing.
