Symptoms usually occur shortly after eating cumin, although you may have a skin rash after simply touching the spice. You may have an itchy, tingly mouth, lips and throat and a swelling of your lips and tongue. Other symptoms include sneezing, a runny nose and itchy, watery eyes. Some people have more severe symptoms, including vomiting, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. In rare cases, anaphylaxis -- a severe, life-threatening reaction -- occurs. If your throat swells, you have trouble breathing, a sudden drop in blood pressure or a weak, rapid pulse, seek emergency medical attention. If you suspect you're allergic to cumin, talk to your doctor and describe your symptoms. It can be difficult to pinpoint the cause, and keeping a food diary can help. You'll probably be asked to take a skin or blood test. In a skin test, your skin is pricked, injecting a tiny amount of allergen below the surface. If you're allergic, a rash develops. In a blood test, a sample is tested for the presence of antibodies, your body's reaction to an allergen.
