    Host: How do I know if I have an allergy?

    Robert B. Gravani: Well, when people consume a certain food and they show a typical reaction, they might have a skin rash, they might have gastrointestinal symptoms, they might have breathing issues, they seriously would want to consult with their physician and seek the advice of an allergist or an immunologist because some of these food allergies are very, very serious. Sometimes the symptoms are very mild, but other times they could be life threatening and it's important to catch them early and get the advice of a physician on these issues.
