What type of reactions could I have?

The most common adverse reaction is an allergic reaction. In order to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction, carefully read all labels and buy products from reputable manufacturers who accurately disclose the ingredients in their products. Take time to carefully review what might have caused the reaction. Doctors and experts in toxicology look at various factors to try and determine the cause of a particular reaction. For example, Ask yourself the following questions.
