Itching All Over The Body And Abdominal Pain After Ebi Consumption?
Hello, I have a complaint, my stomach hurts and my body starts to itch. I have a history of allergies already, and before that I ate ebi. Is my stomach ache and itchiness caused by my ebi allergy?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically ebi is dried shrimp. If you have an allergy to shrimp, then you are not only not advised to consume fresh shrimp, but processed shrimp in any form (including ebi, shrimp meatballs, shrimp dumplings, or other foods containing shrimp). If indeed you have a history of shrimp allergy and you consume ebi before the appearance of your symptoms, the possibility of symptoms of itching and abdominal pain that you experience is indeed due to your allergic reaction. You can try to use hypo-allergenic drugs that you can buy freely at the pharmacy, or go to the doctor if your allergic symptoms are severe enough and don't improve with self-medication. If you experience a very severe allergic reaction such as swelling and redness of the entire body, swelling of the face, mouth, lips, tongue, or you experience shortness of breath, immediately go to the hospital.
Henceforth, try to be more careful in choosing the food you eat, if you want to buy food outside, you should ask the seller whether the food contains shrimp or not.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
