    Alright... I'm kinda freaking out here. I went to a asian-bowl place (Ghengis Grill) and had white fish (cod) in it. I only bring this up because I've never had cod before, and now I'm having these huge bumps break out all over my body (within the past ten minutes) that keep getting bigger. I assume it's allergies but can't find anything online as to how I can alleviate it.

    Apologies for TMI if so, but has anyone else had this? What is the best way to treat it?

    Go to a walk in clinic, or a hospital or a pharmacy right now. Is there someone to go with you?

    I'm not able to go to any kind of clinic, as my military dependent benefits expired this past Tuesday. icon_neutral.gif
    Will a benadryl 25 mg fix it?

    Oh. Crumb. Look, we think you should go to a pharmacy and show the pharmacist your hives. That part's all free, and he or she will tell you whether just benadryl will be good or if an epi-pen or something more is needed. Tell 'em about the fish.

    You'd have to pay for ER if you had to go?

    Antihistamines. Benadryl specifically.

    Thanks for the help. I was really scared there for a second... had one spot on my back that grew to the size of a softball icon_eek.gif
    But I took some anti-histamines which cleared it up by the time I woke up today. NEVER eating cod again! lol

    lol whew! We lost a couple of loved ones to unexpected allergic reactions. Keep the benadryl handy but also consider getting an epi-pen.

    Benadryl or any antihistamine should help, but if its getting worse or if you're having trouble breathing or if your heart is feeling funny/racing then go to the ER.

    well it might not be the cod.....could just be the way it was cooked or if it was not fresh......restaurants are not supposed to keep seafood for too long, but u never know what u get on the plate when u do.....besides cod's not really that bad....it's shelfish that ppl with allergies gotta watch out for
