Allergic reaction to hotdogs?
Thought I'd try to help out a friend who had a scary episode last night. She ended up in the ER her face, eyes, swollen and her throat and nose closing up on her. This happened immediately after eating a hotdog, which she has done numerous times before. I've heard of seafood allergies coming on mid-age, but has anyone heard anything specific about hotdogs, or nitrates. It was pretty severe, they gave her epinehrine and an IV of a drug mix. She was better about 1/2 hour after the epinephrine was adminstered. She's OK today.
