My boyfriend is cooking salmon tonight and I’m terrified. I’m 27 and I’ve never had it but that’s because I’m concerned I’m going to be allergic! My dad is allergic to shellfish so he’s never tried anything like salmon but my mom loves it. Personally, I love shrimp and tilapia but other than that I’ve never had any other seafood. I’m just so worried that I’m allergic and will die....plus, I read online that you can become allergic to fish at anytime. Ugh. My boyfriend wants to enjoy this with me bur it’s so hard because I’m terrified! What’s it like being allergic? How did you know?

My daughter is allergic. The first time she had it she broke out in hives all over her face and arms. She’s allergic to salmon, perch and trout. Our allergist said the allergy is not very common though. We have an epi pen for her but they said to always give Benadryl first so if you’re scared, make sure you have Benadryl on hand. Her reaction was discovered when she was 2.
