LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

More children are going to the ER with allergic reactions than ever before, according to a new study from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.

ER visits for anaphylaxis, or a severe reaction, spiked 150 percent between  2000 and 2016. Nearly half those reactions were from foods, especially peanuts, tree nuts and seeds.

But the experts say it may not be that more kids are allergic, just that more parents are learning the signs and getting help faster.

The Mayo Clinic says food allergies can develop between two minutes and two hours of eating a certain food.

There are also many different types of reactions, anything from tingling or swelling in the mouth to hives or a rapid pulse or dizziness.
