Depending on the individual and the allergen, the symptoms can be system-wide (classical anaphylaxis) or localized to particular body systems (e.g. asthma localized to the respiratory system, eczema localized to the dermis).

In the case of patients with symptoms for the first time, the responsible allergen is usually unanticipated: arrival of cat, an improvised stay in the countryside, etc.

It's rare that people do not know what is wrong with them. Generally it happens when there is a big change in their lives, such as the arrival of an animal...
