Good afternoon,. I have a seafood food allergy, especially if I eat crab, shrimp and squid my allergies can be within minutes or hours, it immediately arises and itchy. I also have a history of heartburn that is rather acute, if there is a safe drug that I consume so that other diseases do not appear when treating the disease being suffered? If there is ointment and pill medicine, may I know what it’s called? thanks.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Allergy is a condition of an immune system disorder, where the body considers dangerous a substance that should not, which is called an allergen. The body's reaction to these allergens is different, some are itchy, appear rashes, shortness of breath, watery eyes, sneezing, so that the severe can cause unconsciousness. Allergens themselves also vary, can take the form of food, drinks, cosmetics, drugs, animal hair, dust, pollen, clothing, to water.
There is no known cause of this condition in a person, nor why a person has a specific reaction to a particular allergen. Just know that a person is more likely to experience allergies if he has asthma, or there are other family members who have similar complaints.
Regarding your question, we apologize in advance but we cannot specifically specify the name of the drug, dosage or brand through this forum. The aim is to avoid misunderstanding in use because this forum is an open forum that anyone can access. In addition, these drugs are also mostly prescription drugs, to get them, you must do an examination by a doctor first and last, if then the condition that you have handling is not right with the drug, the most disadvantaged is you.
So our advice, you should check your complaint with a general practitioner first so that you can be sure that what you are experiencing is really allergic, and for heartburn, what triggers it. This is important because heartburn can be triggered by coffee, spicy foods, acids, oily, stress, late eating, bacterial infections, consumption of pain medication and injury to the stomach, each of which requires a different treatment. Your general practitioner will at the same time determine which treatment is most appropriate for you, which does not interfere with each other's performance.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much, for allergies, since allergies are also not curable, symptoms can only be treated temporarily, the best treatment is to avoid the triggers that in your case, is by not eating sea food. In addition to heartburn, avoid triggers as we mentioned above, multiply the consumption of warm water, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
