allergy for certain seafoods
I'm allergic to crayfish, crab and prawns. As soon as preparation of these foods start, even before anybody else in the house smells it, I have an itching in my throat. If I don't remove myself from the food I feel sick and nausic. What causes this and is there a cure?

Allie, it might be that you’re allergic to iodene or it’s just that you can’t really stand the smell and that it’s not due to an allergy. You can ask your doctor to help you find out. Good luck.
