Peppers are a known allergen that can cause reactions in many people. If an allergy is suspected, it's best to avoid peppers for a week, then try them again to check if there's any recurrence of the symptoms. Often, people who are allergic to raw peppers, can safely eat them if they're cooked. See 'Capsicum'; ' Pepper'; 'Peppercorns'
