The Sudden Cause Of Seafood Allergy?
Good morning Doctor, I’m 30 years old. Already 3 months suddenly I could not eat food that contained seafood and fresh seafood. Previously I did not have any history of food allergies and from childhood I ate any seafood safe, it’s just that I had a history of abnormal HB and always under 10 values u0026amp; has been convicted of deficiency anemia by a doctor.
Allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction or the body misinterprets a harmless substance that is recognized as a dangerous substance. Seafood allergy occurs because the body overreacts to the protein contained in seafood.
Allergic reactions can occur immediately after eating or a few hours later. Usually seafood allergies begin to appear as children, but in some conditions, seafood allergies can also begin to appear as adults. A person can also be allergic to one type of seafood even though previously not allergic to the same food. This is influenced by each person's immune system.
Seafood allergy can cause complaints of itching, rashes, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, nasal congestion, shortness of breath, swelling in the face, to decreased consciousness. Handling of allergies will be adjusted to the patient's condition. If it is mild in the form of hives or rashes, the doctor can give antihistamines to reduce allergic reactions. The medicine you consume contains loratadine, loratadine including antihistamines. However, if the allergic reaction is more severe, the doctor may need to give the drug in the form of injection / injection.
If you always experience an allergic reaction every time you eat seafood, it would be better if you avoid seafood that causes allergies huh. Prevention is the main treatment in allergic cases. If allergy symptoms appear later, you can take antihistamines from the doctor as directed by your doctor and to reduce the itching on the skin, you can apply calamin lotion. If you have a more severe allergic reaction such as shortness of breath and decreased consciousness, immediately go to the emergency room or the nearest doctor so that you can be given more optimal treatment.
Hope it helps you,
