"Histamine poisoning"., or food pseudo-allergie syndrome, comes from the conversion of histidine into histamine by decarboxylation. Consumption of foods containing high amounts of histamine may lead to toxic effects in the body.

The main symptoms are related to the vasodilating effect of histamine. Dilation of capillaries causes phenomena of hemoconcentration. The most frequently encountered symptoms are : facio-cervical redness, skin rash, facial edema, hot flashes, burning sensation in throat, taste of pepper in the mouth, itching, tingling of the skin. These skin symptoms are more specific histamine poisoning and can guide the diagnosis. They are generally followed by type headache disorders, heart palpitations, dizziness. Secondary symptoms, gastrointestinal, may appear : nausea, upset stomach, vomiting, diarrhea.

In general, the incubation period is short, It varies from a few minutes to a few hours. The symptoms disappear spontaneously within a few hours (3H in general). Exceptionally, they can last for several days in the most serious cases. »
