In brief: Avoid & epinephrine
No one can cure your shellfish allergy so staying away from it is the best course of action.
Those allergic to crustaceans may not be allergic to mollusks & vice versa so you might be able to eat some shellfish. See your allergist for testing & advice. A reaction to shellfish can occur in minutes. Antihistamines work in an hour. Epipen (epinephrine) injected into your thigh can be life-saving. Where's yours?
