Description

Codfish is a lean white fish located in the North Atlantic and is a significant source of food. You can find this fish canned, smoked, fresh, or frozen. One of the most common food allergies is fish and is usually lifelong. A reaction could occur if you consume the fish or even through coming in contact with it. Often, if someone is allergic to one fish, they will find they are allergic to other types since many contain the same proteins.  

Some symptoms could include:

•  Swelling of the throat, lips, or tongue

•  Diarrhea, nausea or vomiting

•  Hives, itching, rash

Positive allergy test results should be discussed with your physician.
