Hi Jcayo,
Thanks for writing your query.

Allergy can occur from any item. It is advisable that you get yourself examined at the Emergency Department for your vitals. Taking antiallergy medicines like Fenofexadine 120 mg once a day for three days will help in relief of your symptoms. It will also help even if you are having flu. Drink plenty of pure water.

I hope this is helpful to you.
