Avoid eating foods that may have potentially resulted in a previous adverse reaction and/or anaphylaxis, as secondary exposure may prove fatal.

Immunosuppresive drugs such as oral and intranasal corticosteroids (e.g. prednisone, beclomethasone, fluticasone, triamcinolone) and topical cortisone suspensions and creams, in addition to immune-modulating drugs, may affect test results for antibody assessment.
