    1. Well it’s good to know you aren’t deadly allergic to shellfish. I am horribly allergic to only certain kinds. Weird huh? I can eat shrimp but I’ll get hives if I eat clams or lobster. They said it’s an iodine allergy but it doesn’t really make sense so I just carry benadryl even if I’m only eating shrimp just in case.

      I suggest taking some benadryl first off and drinking some water and relaxing just to be safe. Pepto Bismol might get rid of the upset stomach but if the pain gets worse, more symptoms develop, or you feel concerned, call your doctor right away.

      Treatments and drugs
      By Mayo Clinic staff

      The only sure way to prevent an allergic reaction is to avoid shellfish altogether.

      Medications such as antihistamines may reduce signs and symptoms of a shellfish allergy. These drugs can be taken after exposure to shellfish to control your reaction and help relieve discomfort.

      Despite your best efforts, you may still come into contact with shellfish. If you have a serious allergic reaction, you may need an emergency injection of epinephrine (adrenaline) and a trip to the emergency room. If you’re at risk of having a severe reaction, you may need to carry injectable epinephrine (such as an EpiPen) with you at all times.

      When to seek medical advice
      By Mayo Clinic staff

      See a doctor or allergy specialist if you have possible food allergy symptoms shortly after eating. If possible, see your doctor when the allergic reaction is occurring. This will aid in making a diagnosis.

      Seek emergency treatment if you develop any signs or symptoms of anaphylaxis, such as:

      * Constriction of airways that makes it difficult to breathe
      * Shock, with a severe drop in blood pressure
      * Rapid pulse
      * Dizziness or lightheadedness
