In brief: Possibly, but...

Seafood allergies generally fall into two categories: allergy to shellfish and allergy to other seafoods.
If it is a severe allergy, more ikely with shellfish, you probably should avoid seaweed. But allergies are very individual and unique from person to person. Have an allergist take a very careful history and do testing.
