Can symptoms start months after a tick bite or would the allergy develop within days or weeks?


Edit: I have tried the below sources for information:
▷ Google alpha gal allergy development time from tick bite
▷ Google alpha gal allergy onset time from tick bite
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4235259/ (Quote: the patient reported being bitten by ticks 2 months before the reaction.)
