In brief: In minutes

Type I allergic reactions can vary in severity, one time causing a red rash or hives, the next time a serious and life-threatening acute reaction called anaphylaxis.
Anaphylaxis can be fatal without the rapid administration of an epinephrine (adrenaline) injection. To send an e-mail to me click this link https://www.healthtap.com/experts/12714048-dr-vahe-yetimyan
