    Elizabeth, the first thing that hit my mind when I read the article this morning was an allergic reaction. My son is also allergic to cockroaches but tested negative to shellfish. When I read this I thought that he was allergic to the cockroaches that set off a asthmatic attack. I would have never though that shellfish and cockroaches are similar. Thank you for sharing this article and for your research on this issue.

    Thanks Elizabeth for this article! I’m going to go and ask for shellfish testing for myself. I’ve very allergic to cockroaches and a few years back I got rash on my arm (this was long before I knew about food allergies) after eating shrimp for endless days back East.

    I’ve always keep my shrimp eating down to a dull roar, but I’m going to check it out now!
