Can someone tell me how to recognize the early signs a child is having an allergic reaction?

In brief: Rash

Most children/people develop hives as the first sign of an allergic reaction.
Some will itch, some will complain of throat or mouth itching....In babies or children not yet speaking, hives are the earliest obvious sign.
