In brief: Anaphylaxis perhaps

That's the name for severe allergic reactions.
Any reaction that is very severe can progress to life-threatening symptoms like throat closing, hoarseness, chest tightness, asthma, or circulatory collapse (shock). Skin manifestations like hives are not usually dangerous; just uncomfortable and unsightly.
