World Allergy Week

Event Details

  • Date:

The focus of this year’s World Allergy Week is food allergies. Affecting many across the world, allergies can be life threatening, but there is much we can do to reduce risk and improve outcomes.

Symptoms of a food allergy can vary from mildly annoying to life threatening. You may experience swelling or tingling skin, lips, tongue or throat. You may experience digestive symptoms, or skin reactions. If you are experiencing swelling of the throat, shortness of breath, or other potentially life-threatening symptoms, you should urgently seek advice.
