Diastase/Pepsin combination supplements are very commonly prescribed in clinical practice, mainly in the adult population. The chief indication for such use is indigestion or dyspepsia, wherein concomitant medication with proton pump inhibitors and antiemetics is also advised. Hypersensitivity reactions, though theoretically plausible with the use of digestive enzymes, there are no cases reported in the medical literature, to the best of our knowledge. This is one such case of hypersensitivity secondary to the administration of digestive enzymes in an adult Indian male.
