Complications of food allergy can include:

  • Need for special precautions. Because allergic reactions to peanuts are severe for many people, avoiding peanuts altogether is very important. This requires taking a number of steps to prevent accidental exposure.
  • Anaphylaxis. Children and adults who've had a severe peanut allergy are especially at risk of having this life-threatening reaction.
