If this is a theoretical question, I will leave it for the medically trained as personal experiences show that not everyone presents the same symptoms with allergic reactions to some things, and especially consumables.

If you actually are experiencing symptoms and are trying to self diagnose, I recommend you seek proper medical advice instead. In general, the people here are helpful and like to present positive and correct answers, but some situations demand seeking a professional opinion. Personal health and survival is one of those.

You are correct to reject the 3rd choice "flu".

I think the difficulty in choosing between #1 and #2 may be an issue of semantics or language translation. Both difficulty breathing and a rash can be signs of an allergic reaction. But what kind of rash? How does it develop, and what does it look like? :smile:

I'm pretty sure it is just a schoolwork question. :smile:
