Food allergy is an immune system reaction that occurs as soon as you consume the food item you’re allergic to. People frequently believe they have a food allergy when they experience an unpleasant reaction to something they ate. However, individuals could also be experiencing a reaction known as food intolerance.

While allergy is a response of the immune response to an allergen, food intolerance is mostly a result of an issue with the digestive system. Tomato is a commonly consumed food items in Indian and Western diets can also cause allergy. It is consumed both raw and processed for its nutrient content.

When individuals with tomato allergy are exposed to tomatoes, they may react to it. Even if they take a small bite, it can set off allergic reactions. People allergic to tomatoes may also be allergic to food items like eggplants, pepper, paprikas, and potatoes.

Although reactions to tomato allergy are not usually severe, the responses may vary from individual to individual. The symptoms range from mild rashes to serious breathing trouble. One of the initial symptoms when you come in contact with a tomato can be a rash on your skin. It can soon spread to other body parts.

It is important to get treatment for the allergic reaction as soon as possible. Otherwise, the condition can worsen over time. You may experience one or all of the symptoms if you're allergic to tomatoes. Some of the common symptoms of tomato allergy are:

  • Skin rash or eczema
  • Pain in the abdomen, feeling like throwing up, or diarrhoea
  • A stinging sensation in the throat
  • Coughing, sneezing, or rhinitis
  • Swelling of the face, mouth, tongue, or throat
  • Anaphylaxis (in rare conditions)

The symptoms can last for as long as 20 to 24 hours or as short as an hour or two. If you had a mild exposure, you would have mild symptoms; in the case of severe exposure, the symptoms will take time to go away. Even with treatment, the symptoms can last for two to three days.
