    That’s why people should be watched in the emergency room for several hours after anaphylaxis.

Allergic reactions are common.

The immune response that causes an allergic reaction is similar to the response that causes hay fever. Most reactions happen soon after contact with an allergen.

Many allergic reactions are mild, while others can be severe and life threatening. They can be confined to a little area of the body, or they may affect the entire body. The most severe form is called anaphylaxis or anaphylactic shock. Allergic reactions happen more often in people who own a family history of allergies.

Substances that don’t annoy most people (such as venom from bee stings and certain foods, medicines, and pollens) can trigger allergic reactions in certain people.

First-time exposure may produce only a mild reaction.

Repeated exposures may lead to more serious reactions. Once a person has had an exposure or an allergic reaction (is sensitized), even a extremely limited exposure to a extremely little quantity of allergen can trigger a severe reaction.

Most severe allergic reactions happen within seconds or minutes after exposure to the allergen. Some reactions can happen after several hours, particularly if the allergen causes a reaction after it has been eaten. In extremely rare cases, reactions develop after 24 hours.

Anaphylaxis is a sudden and severe allergic reaction that occurs within minutes of exposure.
