Can an anaphylactic reaction occur hours/days after exposure or does it happen right after?

How long does it take? Also how big is a possibility of a person with generally no allergies to get one?

    Its nearly always a very rapid reaction; however, there is uncommon type of reaction called a delayed hypersensitivity reaction that can occur days later  with progressively worsening symptoms that can lead to analphylaxis.

    If a person has no allergies, the odds of anaphylaxis are zero since its only caused by an allergic reaction.

    Anaphylaxis happens in 20 minutes if you are at minute 21 it isn't going to happen
