Description

Corn, or maize, is a crop that is used for many things such as food for humans and livestock, biofuel, and raw material. Though corn allergy is rare, it can occur when someone is exposed to corn or products that contain corn like cornstarch, corn syrup, or vegetable oil. When someone who has an allergen to corn encounters it, the body’s immune system will mistake it for something that is harmful. 

Some symptoms could include:

•  Nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea

•  Headaches

•  Abdominal pain

•  Hives

•  Itching around the mouth area

•  Wheezing

•  In severe cases, anaphylaxis

Positive allergy test results should be discussed with your physician.
