In brief: NOT

I doubt you are allergic to Vitamin C= ascorbic acid, since we need it to live.
You may be allergic to an ingredient in a pill that contains vitamin C or a supplement with added ingredients. Check all ingredients.

In brief: Unlikely allergy

It's unlikely that we would develop allergy to vitamin C.
Ascorbic acid molecules are too small to instigate an immunologic reaction. However, you could have side effects or develop toxicity to Vitamin C. Nausea, vomitting, headache, hyperventilation, ect.
