Less commonly, difficulty emptying the bladder, confusion, hallucinations, memory changes, restlessness, changes in heart rate, and local skin irritation. Test it out at home before taking this on trip or cruise.

Reactions can include runny or stuffy nose (allergic rhinitis) wheezing and cough (asthma) or skin reactions like eczema or hive. ( a severe reaction can lead to difficult breathing, shock and even death in the case of anaphylaxis.).

Anaphylaxis: The most severe reaction that can occur after repeated exposure to something you are allergic to is called anaphylaxis. This rare but sudden condition causes itchy welts (hives), followed by wheezing, shortness of breath, and occasionally, swelling of the tongue or throat. Without treatment, swelling of the tongue or throat can sometimes worsen and block the airway.

While anaphylaxis is the most common immediate life threatening hypersensitivity reaction- oftentime to foods, one should be alert to some of the very severe reactions associated with drug hypersensitivity- such as Stevens Johnson, Toxic Epidermal Necrolyis (TEN) as well as DRESS.

Dr. Sean McGhee
Allergy and Immunology 23 years experience
Minutes to hours: The onset of allergic reactions is usually rapid, within minutes of exposure to the allergen. The latest start to an allergic reaction is perhaps one to two hours. Allergic reactions will usually last anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, though longer reactions are sometimes possible. Reactions outside these time parameters are probably not "true" allergies but other kinds of intolerance.

Anaphylaxis: The most dangerous allergic reaction is anaphylaxis.

The treatment is avoidance of trigger and use of injectable epinephrine.
