Allergies

Allergic to Blue Agave tequila or orange soda

03/28/2006

Question:

I recently had an allergic reaction. My face swelled up and turned red along with the rest of my body. I became very dissy and hot. After this happened again, I was able to narrow it down to either Blue Agave Tequila, or Orange Soda. Is there any way of telling which it is? because I happen to like Blue Agave Tequila very much. Any sort of information would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

Answer:

You need to avoid these agents for the time being.  I would see an allergist in your area who can help sort this out for you.  Sometimes provocation testing is necessary to rule in or rule out potential causes of your reaction.
