Can Sourdough cause Allergic Reactions or Allergies?

Curious if Sourdough (starter etc) can induce Allergies. Or can one have an allergy to sourdough starter/bacteria?

Anyone experienced/heard of this?

I haven't heard of except for with people that already can't eat wheat products. In fact It's usually the other way around, people that can't eat bread made with commercial yeast but can eat sourdough bread.

I'm sure it's possible though.
