Ibir Itchy And Bumpy, Throat Feels Uncomfortable, And Difficulty Breathing After Consuming Shrimp And Crabs?
Thank you for the question.
Itchy and bumpy lips, throat feels uncomfortable, and difficulty breathing after consuming shrimp and crabs can indeed indicate that you are allergic to these two types of food. This allergy arises when your immune system mistakenly assumes the entry of a substance into the body that is considered dangerous, when in fact it is not. The impact of this immune system error, will produce a variety of chemical mediators, especially histamine, which in turn can trigger itching, bumps, swelling, redness, slimy throat, cough, runny nose, shortness of breath, wheezing, nausea, vomiting, and many other complaints. This allergic reaction can appear even more severe, if you consume more and more food triggers the allergy. If you consume only a small amount, it can be a complaint that appears mild, so ignored by you.
It could also be that your complaints occur due to other reasons, for example contact dermatitis, insect bites, skin infections, digestive infections or other organ systems, gastric acid reflux, drug eruptions, malnutrition, cholinergic urticaria, and so on.
Unfortunately, we don't check you in person. Therefore, it is difficult for us to ascertain what exactly the conditions underlying your complaint.
It is better if you check yourself directly to the doctor or ENT doctor so that your condition can be identified with the cause, and then given the best treatment. If necessary, your doctor may direct you to undergo an allergy test, blood test, or other investigations so that treatment can be carried out on target.
