Seafood Allergy: Causes, Symptoms in Children and How to Prevent it

Allergic reactions can occur at any age, including infants and children. One of them is an allergic reaction to seafood. Allergic to fish, shrimp, oysters, and other seafood can cause severe allergic symptoms, ie anaphylactic, or a series of allergy symptoms occur simultaneously. Under certain conditions, anaphylactic can also reduce blood pressure suddenly, resulting in loss of consciousness and risk of death.

Most of experts believe that the content of histamine in fish, shrimp, squid or other seafood, especially those that are not fresh, that trigger allergic reactions. Histamine is formed from proteins that react with the enzymes that are formed after the death of living creatures. Generally, allergic symptoms will appear when seafood quality is not good anymore. Because the meat has begun to be spent by spoilage microorganisms that react with these enzymes..

Swelling of the face tract and respiratory, itching and red rash on the skin, and disorders of the digestive tract.

Delay giving seafood on a child until he was 3 years old. If you want to give the fish, choose a type of freshwater fish such as tilapia fish, catfish, and carp. Salmon that live in saltwater and spawn in fresh water is also quite safe to try.
