    i heard the worse cases grown shells on their backs as homes!! :scared:

    Symptoms:
    The most common symptoms of shellfish allergy are hives (urticaria) and major redness and swelling below the skin (angioedema). Shellfish allergies are a major cause of anaphylactic shock.


    Google Shelfish Allergy symptoms and theres lots of links on it :)

    hope your ok??

    EDIT: http://hcd2.bupa.co.uk/fact_sheets/html/food_allergy.html that seems like a good link

    Did you eat it once, then have the reaction 2 days later?

    Wouldn't have thought it would be the crab if that was the case.......I could be wrong though.....Did you do anything else different? New shower gel/shampoo? Visited a new place? Ate something the night before the reaction?

    If you still got it then I would make an appointment with our doctor and he will give you some anti histamine (SP) ointment to apply.
