What Is The Right Medicine For Healing Chicken And Seafood Allergy?
Hello, about two months ago some red spots appeared on my body and it felt very itchy. Only one red spot in each section. Watery red spots or festering. The itching appeared worse after I ate seafood or chicken. I have been to the doctor twice but still not recovered.

Two days later, it has healed a little, but on the fifth day it relapsed again because I accidentally ate the dishes that had chicken. allergic to me .. Thank you

Allergy is a hypersensitive reaction (overreaction) of the immune system (the body's defense) against exposure to certain substances called allergens, which in normal people does not cause excessive reactions. Allergens in each person can be different, can be a small particle (dust, animal hair, pollen, etc.), weather (cold or hot), certain foods (eggs, seafood, shrimp, etc., more often protein), or if affected by certain objects (metal, latex, etc.).
Unlike other diseases, diseases that are allergic processes (food allergies, bronchial asthma, etc.) so far have not been able to be cured definitively. In other words, there has not been found a drug that medically can eliminate the tendency of immune cells to respond excessively to these allergens. Therefore, treatment for allergic diseases is prioritized on identifying allergens, preventing exposure to allergens, and using anti-allergic and inflammation-reducing drugs (such as the drugs you mentioned) that work to relieve allergic symptoms (itching, bumps appearing, tightness, etc.), but does not cure allergies. That is why if later exposed again, allergic reactions will still reappear.
Some of the methods that are being studied are by desensitization, namely by describing allergens little by little so that the body's cells are accustomed. However, there is not enough scientific evidence to support this method, so it is not advisable to try to eat foods that are known to cause allergic reactions. This is important because allergic reactions can develop from mild symptoms to severe symptoms at any time, which can cause anaphylactic shock, shortness of breath, palpitations, until death.
In your case, the process of managing allergies is relatively easier because you can already identify the substances or substances that can cause allergic reactions. What you can do now is to avoid consuming these foods, by finding substitute foods that contain nutrients or similar nutrients. You can bring medicine given by doctors wherever you travel so that you can be anticipated if at any time an allergic reaction occurs.
Thus, hopefully it can be useful.
