It is alright to : Worry. However, if you are not allergic - it is most likely that your reaction will consist of pain, swelling and redness at the site. For generalized reaction please obtain prompt medical help. Seek medical care for milder allergic reactions: swelling of > 4 inches, nausea, GI cramps, diarrhea.

Severe allergic reactions may present with swelling of tongue, mouth, lips or throat; difficulty swallowing & breathing, wheezing, tightness of the chest, hives, generalized weakness, confusion & slurring of speech. Call 911 for a severe reaction.
