23 People Share Their Worst Allergic Reactions, and They Are Equally Horrible and Funny

As anyone who has allergies knows, an allergic reaction occurs when your body is sensitive to something that might be harmless to most people—a certain food, chemical, plant, animal hair, etc. The reaction can be anything from annoying stuff like sneezing, skin rashes, or diarrhea to the most serious and life-threatening reaction, anaphylaxis. And most of the time, those reactions can cause "pretty noticeable" symptoms on the face and body. So let's keep scrolling as we present some of the worst allergic reactions that will actually make our faces hurt.
Obviously, we are not making light of severe allergies here. Even if some of these people can look back and laugh now, there's no doubt they were in pain and probably panicking at the time, but we'll let their stories tell you more about all that. In addition to making you cringe or laugh, we hope this list of worst allergic reactions serves as a reminder of why allergies should always be taken seriously.
