Seafood Fan Despite Allergy

I love seafood, despite my Allergy to them. Thank god for those anti-histamine pills which I pop in whenever I know I want to have seafood for the day because at least I still can enjoy them but just need to plan ahead. I saw these clams at the seafood stalls recently and i know my brain instantly sent me salivating and sent pictures of Chilly Crabs and that sort into my visual mind. The only think I avoid taking is fresh raw oysters because it will complicate my allergy further. I had them more often when I was in my twenties because my allergy was not quite conclusive and I was on medication. But now i really need to avoid them. Clams, Crabs and Prawns are still okay as long as I have my medication. Do you know of anyone who has allergy to seafood?

actually i have been used to the allergy pills so long (about 10 years liao). only take it when i need it. before i tried all sorts of ways even trying a bit at a time. but once i consume cannot liao.. my whole body sure swollen like put on 5kgs. its dangerous for me and some, actually. some cases can be fatal. the suffering part is when doing the test.. where they scratch some part of yr skin to see wat you are allergy too. it takes weeks to try every food and product for result. hehehe

anyway, thank you all for your support. me on holiday, be back tues. i will bloghop more when i'm back, ya.

The only seafood I'm allergic to is prawns. I can't take even a tiny bit cos my throat would swell and I wouldn't be able to breathe and I'd die ... well, not really la, but it sounded more dramatic ... LOL!

Yes, my son is. He loves crabs and prawns.

Whenever he has these food, the mouth will itch, then he feels he is breathless...
