  • In the last 2 weeks, we have had crab twice. Once at a friend's home, and another time at our house, and both times my husband has gotten violently ill. This is entirely new for him as well. I have decided he has developed a sensitivity to shellfish.

  • You are probably developing an allergy to red shellfish. Ask your Dr. for an allergy test to confirm. I ended up in the hospital with a severe reaction. Now I can't even touch it without getting sick. Good Luck.
