Not the case: 'Throat closing' is a symptom for many disorders including severe allergic reaction, but won't be the only symptom, can it happen in theory, may be, but in real life, severe allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, usually has other associated symptoms too, can be depressed respiration, reduced blood pressure, wheezing, or the rash and swelling of soft tissues (angioedema).etc. Keep epinephrine shot handy
When having an allergic reaction, can throat closing or funny feeling in throat be the ONLY symptom you have? Or will you have other symptoms with it?
Throat closing can: Be an independent allergic response.Get a more detailed answer ›
Could begin: Immediately in some cases. That is why it is important for some people with known allergies to carry an epi-pen.
Antihistamines: The uncomfortable effects from an allergic reaction generally respond to antihistamines such as claritin, (loratadine) zyrtec or allegra. For more severe reactions, oral corticosteroids such as Prednisone may be needed--these are by prescription only. Also, it is key to avoid whatever triggered the allergic reaction in the first place.

I'm worried because my throat followed. Is this normal, or is this an allergic reaction, what do you suggest?
Sorry, it looks like: Part of your question was cut off. Recommend clarifying and re-asking question.
I'm worried because my dr thinks that I don't have allergic reaction but my throat tickles alot. Help, what do you suggest?
Throat tickling: The sense of irritation in the back of throat has many possible causes. Food allergic reactions rapidly peak minutes to an hour after ingestion, then pass (usually with treatment), so persistent symptoms aren't usually food allergy. Respiratory allergies tend to involve the eyes and nose primarily; if no problems there, just phlegm, post nasal drip and hoarseness, GERD possible, too. Get seen.
Yes: Antihistamines help, steroids, avoidance of inciting agent/allergen. One thing to stress is ensuring that this was an allergic reaction, as well as the severity of it. Just to stress: anytime there is airway involvement - any shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing, stridorous breathing - this is a life-threatening allergic event & you should always seek immediate emergency care & evaluation.
Yes: It may be from acid reflux or some other factors. See your doctor.

So. IM having a panic attack nd I just took. A new brand of kholnopin now my mouth itches and Mt throats dry allergic reaction. Possible. To.diff brand?
Likely Yes: Itchy throat and mouth are very common symptoms when you are allergic to something. Most commonly- a food item such as fresh fruits or vegetables. Is it occurring all the time? Or just when you eat certain things? Also, do you have seasonal allergies? Seasonal allergies sometimes present that way as well- along with nasal congestion etc.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm a hairdresser. Can the odor from hair dye cause an allergic reaction or the throat to swell/close?
Yes, tho...: ..it techically isn't an allergy. Could be hypersensitivity to the odor of the aerosol which can actually trigger tightness in upper airways such as laryngospasm or paradoxical vocal cord movement. Sensation usually triggers coughs but highly distressing airway spasm may develop. Sipping water and exiting area help. Can't rule out asthma so I'd see an airway specialist: allergist/ent/or pulmonary.
I ate some walnuts and then woke up with my throat hurting and now I'm loosingy voice could it be an allergic reaction?
Could be: Or could be not, if you ate walnuts before, you can still get an allergic reaction, but kind of rare, maybe the start of a cold, at any rate, take an antihistaminic OTC, unless contraindicated, if symptoms progress or you develop difficult breathing please go to ER, be careful while driving or operating machinery and taking an antihistaminic, might cause drowsiness, good luck
So today I developed a warm bumpy rash on my chest area just under my throat and it's warm to the touch. Allergic reaction?

Allergic reaction week ago. Throat is now very sore. Had strep test and it was negative. Is this a normal reaction from drugs or more serious?
My throat has been scratchy and I have a cough from the scratchiness. It also feels clogged up. Could this be an allergic reaction to a fragrance?
Irritant: If this has been present for less than 10 days, then it may just be a cold. Strep throat does not cause a cough. It it has been present for 10 or more days or getting worse, it may be from a sinus infection. Once the nose is inflamed, any irritant including fragrance would trigger sneezing.
