  • Not unusal. An allergy can come up at anytime and happen out of the blue.

  • What happens is you have to be exposed to something before you can be allergic to it. So you can't just be allergic to something, you have to have exposure... sometimes you will be fine while your body is fighting the reaction, then it can't fight anymore and gives you a sign that its had enough.
