Peanut panic

Matthew Smith (Photographer)

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site

Abstract

The reaction begins not with a bang, but a whimper; a gentle tickle in the back of your throat. You cough politely. Then, everything changes. Your throat constricts, as if crushed by invisible, murderous hands. Out of the corner of your eye, you notice your cheeks puffing, then your ballooning upper lip. A wave of nausea washes over you and you struggle to stay upright. As you frantically search for your epi-pen, that life-saving shot of adrenaline, you see your fingers have turned an eerie shade of blue. Cyanosis is setting in. Is this the end? And all because of what? A peanut?
