Description

The shellfish allergy test examines allergic reactions to a variety of shellfish. Shellfish allergies can strike at any time in a person's life, even if they have never had a problem before. An individual who is allergic to one form of shellfish is likely to be allergic to others as well. Abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, trouble breathing, itching, hives, swelling of the face, lips, tongue, hands, dizziness, and fainting are common allergy symptoms. Anaphylaxis, which includes swelling of the throat, a drastic drop in blood pressure, and unconsciousness, may occur in severe cases.
