Sushi: Allergy or any seafood allergy is common,even if you ate it before,sushi and other eastern seafood contain many unknown ingredients,better to avoid eating it again, keep an antihistaminic as cetirizine or loratadine handy case you develop a reaction again,be cautious when eating food with unknown ingredients, you might want to see an allergist if the problem continues,check aaaai.org or acaai.org
