About Seafood Food Allergies?
Hello, my doctor wants to ask. R nI happen to be allergic to shrimp. But here I don’t know whether I have allergies to other seafood. Incidentally, my brother was going to invite me to eat at a restaurant, and there was a seafood menu. And also I have never eaten crab or shellfish before. Doctor, when we are allergic to shrimp will we also be allergic to crab or shellfish? thank you
Food allergy is something that can happen to everyone, and food allergies can be different. Food allergies occur due to the hypersensitivity of the body's cells to the food consumed, so that if exposed / consumption of these foods will grow the body's response such as red spots appearing on the body, itching, can be accompanied by swollen red eyes, and shortness of breath.
If you have an allergy to shrimp consumption, you may not necessarily be allergic to crab or shellfish. There is no link between shrimp allergy and crab allergy. So to make sure, you can do a food allergy check first, so that later you can find out what foods are allergic to you.
If you eat crab and feel allergy symptoms, then immediately consult a doctor so that the doctor can provide proper help.
