Hi Ira Meira .. Thank you for the question given.
The human body has a different response to each material or substance used in the body or substances that enter the body. There is a reaction of the body's defense system against something that is considered harmful to the body, even though it is not harmful to others. This is called allergies. Allergy symptoms may appear immediately after exposure until they occur several hours later. Symptoms that arise can include: itching, swelling of body parts such as face, lips, or tongue; reddish rash, tightness, chest pain, difficulty breathing, watery eyes.
Meanwhile, if you suspect that allergies occur due to the use of powder creams, this can occur due to allergic contact dermatitis. This skin inflammation occurs due to skin contact with a certain substance and results in a red, itchy, dry, or painful rash. To find out the cause of your complaint, you need to see beforehand whether you have ever complained when eating stingray or if you are allergic to a certain brand of powder, besides that, you are also more at risk of having allergies if you have a family history of allergies.
For that, what you can do is identify the triggers of your allergies and avoid exposure, you can stop the consumption of stingrays or the powder you are using to see if there is a change with this discontinuation. If there are still complaints, it is better if you see a doctor. The doctor will perform a live physical examination and can recommend an allergy test so that you can find out what your allergies are.
