Re: Reaction to Sunflower Seeds
I agree, that's what happens to me from food allergy, except I also have lip swelling. Luckily, I'm only allergic to a few uncommon types of shellfish, so for me accidental exposures are pretty unlikely.
Sunflower seeds, unfortunately, are used a lot, and accidental exposures will happen now and then no matter how careful you are. Get a blister pack of Benadryl. Put two in your purse and the rest in the cabinet, then you'll be prepared for any accidental sunflower seed run-ins.
