Raw shrimp: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/can-you-eat-raw-shrimp#safety Consider probiotic like Florastor , and activated charcoal. Take charcoal 3-4 hours apart from Florastor so it does not affect the probiotic. https://www.drugs.com/mtm/florastor.html f/u/ w/ MD/ gastroenterology if diarrhea develops.

DKC1: The most famous of these is dyskeratosis congenita, in which the cells of the body that must constantly renew themselves eventually fail. Thankfully, it is quite uncommon. Ordinary pernicious anemia (which should not be missed) can make the hair go gray early.

Maybe: This may be a concussion of the retina called commotio retina. Sometimes, this may be associated with bleeding in the eye, retinal tears or detachments or other ocular damage. It's a good idea to have a dilated eye exam with pressure check asap.
