Traveling with a peanut allergy can be a dangerous problem. Stay safe and healthy on your travels by using one or more of these apps.
Peanut allergies are one of the most common food allergies. While many of us love to have our meals and snacks prepared with a dash of peanuts, the ingestion of peanuts could be the difference between life and death for some others. People with severe nut allergies have to take extra precautions before eating in a new place or sampling a new dish. Such sensitivity can take some of the fun out of traveling since experiencing new cuisines is one of the great joys of traveling. Wheezing, itchy rashes, hives, stomach cramps, nausea, and vomiting are some of the unpleasant consequences of a peanut allergy. However, a peanut allergy does not have to impede your travel. The AllergyEats app guides users to determine the best restaurants for allergies in the US. It uses unbiased user-generated reviews to assess how well or poorly restaurants cater to the needs of people with allergies. With this app, travelers to and within the US can stay healthy and live longer while they enjoy their trip.
That said, international travel can be more difficult with food allergies. Flying with allergies means that you have to deal with safely working around airline food, and may also deal with difficulties in communicating your allergies to people with whom you don’t share a language. The Allergy Translate app translates your allergies into German, French, and Spanish for when you’re visiting a place where they speak these languages. If they don’t speak any of these languages in your travel destination, popular translation apps like Microsoft Translator and Google Translate can also help you communicate your allergies to waiters and other people who speak various languages as you explore the world.
Finally, buying food products when traveling is another problem people with peanut allergy tend to encounter. The variety of unfamiliar but enticing food products one might discover on a trip can prove dangerous to people with allergies. You can use apps to mitigate such an occurrence. The ipiit app, for example, helps you shop for food items that are safe for your consumption. Users of the app have to enter their allergy preferences into the app and then scan the barcodes on food products they find interesting. Immediately, the app supplies information on the safety of the product for people with allergies and provides safer allergen-free alternatives if required.
