Seafood Allergy: Allergy to any food, in this case lobster will cause symptoms of oral itching, lip or tongue swelling, hives, breathing difficulty and/or throat closure etc. Food allergy is diagnosed with clinical history followed by skin or blood test and that information helps establish the diagnosis and severity of the allergy.
Sensitization.: A positive immunocap ige or allergy prick test to food is at best 50% predictive of a positive response on food challenge. Usually, the higher the response, the higher the likelihood of being allergic to that food. You should talk to your allergist about this. By the way, I am not referring to igg antibody to foods.
Absolutely NOT!: Do not eat any shellfish until after you have been seen by a board certified allergist and told that you are not allergic to shellfish. Doing so may result in severe allergic reaction or death. All shellfish cross react including lobster, crab, shrimp and crayfish.
If you are sensitive: If you are sensitive to the proteins in these foods, your body makes antibodies that recognize them and set off an allergic reaction. Most foods have the potential of causing allergies, but a few are more likely and shellfish are among the 8 most common food allergens.See 1 more doctor answer
Strange back pain when I eat lobster, but other shellfish no symptoms. Allergy? What could this be?
Maybe allergic: Could be. I suggest that you discuss with an allergist and get tested.
Allergic reaction: You did not specifiy any symptoms, so the only advice I can give you is to immediately head to the er to get treated.
Lip gloss: A number of chemicals in lip gloss can cause topical allergic reactions. You should see an allergist or dermatologist to undergo a patch test and find out which chemical you reacted to.
No: If you are allergic to sesame seeds, the best thing is to read labels and make sure you do not eat, touch or inhale anything that contains them.
Extremely rare: Swelling and itching of tissues that are in contact with the elastics. If you have a problem call your orthodontist for advice.
No: Not if you are taking allergy medicine for canesten oral ingredients, nor take it if you are taking astemezole, or have terfenadine laying around since it has been off market for couple of years now (also known as seldane).
Delayed reaction: Symptoms do not appear for hours or even days. Poison ivy and similar plants cause some of the best-known delayed hypersensitivity reactions. When a person first touches the plant, no reaction occurs for the first 24 to 48 hours. Read more: http://www. Livestrong. Com/article/253484-types-of-delayed-reaction-allergies/#ixzz2vcsli9lf.
Several differences: Normal breakouts usually are pimples, small bumps with pus in them. Allergic reactions often involve a lot of itching and a fine sandpaper like rash. Allergic reactions also often involve some swelling of the tissues of the face. If you experience any shortness of breath this could also be an allergic reaction and you should go to hospital if this occurs.
