I don't think I am allergic to fish, but when consuming fish oil with 1000mg omega-3, I have itchiness mostly on foot. What's wrong?

In brief: Unusual

This would be an unusual allergic response.
I would stop the fish oil and if there is no foot itchiness for a week or two, i would resume the fish oil and if the foot symptoms return, this would strongly suggest some sort of intolerance or allergy to the fish oil.

In brief: Coincidence

It's either coincidence or you're allergic.
Not all fish contain 1000 mg of omega 3. Omega 3 capsules may contain inert ingredients not found in fish. They're not identical.
