  • Reactions can occur within a few minutes or often after a second exposure.

  • Red, itchy rash or Hives are the most obvious symptoms.
  • Swelling around the eyes and lips are also common.
  • Flushing, headache, abdominal cramps, runny nose, and congestion.
  • Worse symptoms may include difficulty breathing, wheezing, cough, fever, swollen tongue, sloughing of skin, and blood in urine.
  • Severe reactions can lower blood pressure and cause fainting.

  • Onset of reaction often related to use of new product.
  • Previous history of similar reaction.
  • Rashes on a single area or over the entire body.

  • Most cases resolve when the cause is removed.
  • Over-the-counter antihistamines will help with the itching and swelling.
  • Physicians in severe cases can give adrenaline.  Severe reactions should be treated in the emergency room.
