Can I develop food allergy symptoms several days later?

    No. The symptoms develop within minutes or up to 2 hours after a person has eaten food that contains the allergen. If you experience similar symptoms over 2 hours later, see your doctor to rule out other possibilities.

    The only exception is that a breastfed baby may develop symptoms between 2 and 8 hours after mom has ingested the allergen.
