Yes: Theoretically you can develop an allergy to any substance, even if taken for a long period of time.
Dr. Jack Mutnick

Unlikely: Dhea is a natural product produced in our body. Unlikely you would be allergic to it. If you are taking dhea supplements, it is likely you are reacting to some preservative or component of the capsule used to manufacture the product.
