In brief: May not be allergy

Allergic reactions generally occur immediately.
Can get hives, angioedema, wheezing, runny nose, sneezing, nausea, vomitting, or diarrhea. Dry itchy skin is not a sign of an allergic reaction, but could be eczema flaring from ingestion of a triggering food.

In brief: Not all related

I can see itchy scalp as a possible allergy but eating fish cannot immediately cause you to have thinning hair and dry skin.
This is related to a more chronic cause, did you get your thyroid checked? Did you see a dermatologist? You may have an unrelated skin condition.
