    Symptoms of anaphylaxis typically include appearance of rash or hives, flushing, itchiness and swelling of the lips or tongue. The affected person may also experience tightness in the chest or throat, resulting to difficulty in breathing. Chest pain, headaches, dizziness and low blood pressure levels may also result.
