    More information is required. What kind of reaction? was it purposefully given, did the patient have a known allergy, was it maliciously given? All of the answers play a part in the correct coding.

    I don't have much more information. A child ate a cashew and began having a sore throat and wheezing immediately after. No mention of knowing the child was allregic.
