Yes it can: That's why you need to know the triggers well, try to avoid them as much as you can, ask your doctor about keeping an Epipen (epinephrine) handy, just in case a severe reaction develops, see an allergist if you can for complete assessment. Check aaaai.org or acaai.org for an allergist in your area, good luck
