With most food allergies, it only takes 15 or 20 minutes after being exposed before severe reactions occur. A bite of shrimp or lobster and before long, a person's throat starts to close and parts of their body begin to swell. It's scary and potentially life-threatening, but they can usually seek immediate treatment and pinpoint the food that caused the problem.

The allergy to mammalian meat like beef, pork, and lamb that's spread by a bite from a lone star tick is different.
