In brief: Only 0n area
Any areas of the body that are touched by the substance you are sensitive with start getting red an itchy 12-24 hours after contact.
Each spot has it's own timeline. They will continue to get worse sometimes blistering and oozing by 48 hours. Without treatment will gradually resolve in 7 -10 days.
