Hello everyone my name is Gustavo Woltmann and I am an assistant in a small publishers office. I need to ask regarding my allergy. I am allergic to crabs and lobsters but not to other seafoods. Is there a cure for this case? I use to eat crabs when I was young but when I turned 18 I became allergic to it already.

Usually when you become truly allergic to foods (such as hives, anaphylactic shock etc), there is no cure other than to avoid those foods.

Sad to say, but Sherry is right, once an allergic response then your risking a even bigger allergic response. Crabs and lobsters are considered shell fish so you must be careful not to eat shell fish and sea salt is also a possible trigger because there is shell fish in sea salt...look up everything you can on line and do your best to avoid this...each allergic response that you've already have had can lead to a more serious anaphylactic response, which you must avoid. AnaphylĂ ctic responses can be fatal...

It would be nice if there was a cure, sadly, no...
