Physical allergy encompasses a spectrum of illness ranging from simple urticaria to exercise-induced anaphylaxis (EIA), which can include vascular and respiratory collapse. A temporal relationship of exercise to allergic triggers, including certain foods and medications, has been demonstrated with EIA. Pathophysiologic evidence demonstrates commonalities with other forms of allergy. While specific diagnostic tests exist to assist in diagnosing EIA, a thorough history often proves most useful. Treatment options include various pharmacologic agents, although interventions aimed at prevention will likely prove to be more beneficial.
