Specializes in Allergy and Immunology

Might not have: Adverse reactions to a food can often be mistaken for a food allergy. Undercooked or spoiled shellfish can often cause an adverse reaction that gets mistaken for a food allergy. You should get tested including a food challenge to correctly diagnose if you do or do not have an allergy to shrimp.
