An allergic reaction to shrimp may show symptoms almost immediately or within hours of coming into contact with it. Symptoms may include the following:
- Difficulty breathing
- Itching and swelling of the face
- Stomach pain, nausea, and vomiting
A shrimp allergy can potentially become life-threatening if anaphylaxis occurs. An anaphylactic reaction to shellfish is a medical emergency. If you experience any of the following symptoms, you should visit the emergency room immediately and receive treatment for:
- Swollen throat
- Drop in blood pressure
You may be at an increased risk of anaphylaxis if you’re allergic to shrimp and you have asthma or a history of anaphylaxis with other foods.
Many with a shrimp allergy have an overall shellfish allergy. Other shellfish include prawn, crayfish, lobster, crabs, mollusks, scallops, oysters, clams, and squid.
