Do I have an allergy?

It is unlikely that you are allergic if the symptoms do not start within 2 hour of being exposed to the suspect allergen  ( e.g. food, airborne allergens like grass, insect venom, medication/drugs).

 

Most reactions occur  within 10 minutes. Some allergies and intolerances do develop later.

It is very unlikely that you are allergic if you have since been exposed to the suspect allergen and have had no reaction.

If you are having an allergic reaction to something some of the symptoms you might experience are:-

Tingling in your lips or mouth

Swollen lips, face or tongue

Itchy , lumpy skin rash

Difficulty in breathing or wheezy
