1Please note the difference between allergy symptoms and a sudden allergic reaction. Sudden allergic reactions are often the result of a trigger, such as a medication, food, or bee sting. Sudden allergic reactions typically manifest with sudden swelling of the face or neck, difficulty breathing, wheezing, and quickly expanding hives. If you are experiencing symptoms of a sudden allergic reaction, call 911 and go to the nearest emergency room.
