In brief: Yes

One can become allergic to any substance at any time, even if you have tolerated it before.
Dangerous allergic reactions such as lip, face, tongue, or throat swelling require immediate trip to er; lesser reactions like a rash or hives can be treated with over the counter Benadryl (diphenhydramine) -- for an adult 2 tablets every 4 hours. Good luck!
