Hi,

Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic!

Yes, it may be related to your kind of anaphylactic food allergy. However, other causes which are possible like infection, foreign body should also be excluded which can be done by thorough physical examination.

I suggest not to neglect visit to your immunologist as anaphylactic food allergy can be very dangerous.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have have any clarifications.
