Just found out Ds2 is allergic to fish
Main reaction is vomiting and drowsiness. I have a referral to see a specialist soon. So far it's just from eating pieces of fish (fish fillets, fresh and frozen).
The weird thing is, I could have sworn he had fish last year and was ok. Can it just develop later in their young life. (Ds is 2 years old)?

Fish allergy. Tell me about your child's.

I developed a seafood allergy as a child. For me, it's all seafood and I immediately throw up. It hasn't got any more severe over time, but hasn't got any better either.
I have to be careful of fried foods as they're often cooked with seafood. If the oil is pretty fresh and there hasn't been much seafood fried in there it's okay.

Thanks for your reply. I was worried when the paramedic said reactions can get worse the next time he eats fish.

It could, it's something that is going to vary from person to person. Hopefully that's as bad as his gets

Not quite the same but it can develop later in life. My sister ate fish and seafood as a child with no reaction, but when she was about 15 she had her first anaphylactic reaction to fish. She now carries an epi pen with her as she can even react to things with fish sauce in them (even if only a tiny amount).

I developed a fish allergy at the age of 8. My eyes would swell up so much I couldn't see for 2-3 days. It also occurred with chicken. But it was only from the 'fumes' of raw chicken and fish. I couldn't touch bait or prepare raw chicken/fish. I could literally feel the 'fumes' go up my nose. Luckily growing up there were no sushi train places where I lived. The allergy came on suddenly one day and it wasn't until I had kids that it settled down. I can now prepare chicken without anything happening and whilst I can't touch it, I can be in the kitchen if someone else is prepping fish. (Shellfish and crustaceans I am ok- it's just fish).
