    sea food[shrimp]allergy

    i love sea food,i ate sea food every week.2 month ago i ate shrimp and i got some red spots on my face.i never had this problem before.
    could be an allergy or the shrimp was not fresh?
    i am afraid to eat shrimp now,but i miss the flavor.
    any advice?

    You can definately develop a seafood allergy as you get older. If the shrimp had gone "bad" you would more likely have had problems with throwning up than with a rash. I would recommend avoiding shrimp, and being very cautions with other shellfish (crab, lobster, crayfish, etc.) as well. You can see a physician for allergy testing to see which of these would still be considered safe.

    My sister developed an allergy to lobster AFTER moving to Maine in her mid-40s. She cannot eat lobster at all, but still is fine with shrimp and crab. Everyone is individual in this.
