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.
