As a result of this response some symptoms appear on the allergic person, and if you are thinking about the symptoms of allergies, the first thing that comes to mind is probably sneezing, runny tears, runny nose, itching and rash, but sensitivity in some people can cause anorexia ( lack of appetite for food ).
Allergies causing Anorexia .
The most common allergy to suppress appetite is food allergies. During food allergies, your intestines become inflamed and swollen, which can cause diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. These symptoms may reduce your desire for food, and may become worse when you eat. Seasonal allergies can also cause depression, loss of appetite, and difficulty sleeping. Some medications may also cause anorexia that has nothing to do with an allergic reaction. ( Do not assume that anorexia is an allergic reaction always ).

Pseudoephedrine is a common nasal anti-congestion found in many allergy drugs. Taking pseudoephedrine can reduce your appetite and cause increased heart rate, insomnia, and irritability. If you have any other side effects while taking this therapy, stop using it and talk to your doctor.
