    I am allergic to fish oil pills, but have no seafood allergies...?

    When I was around 8 years old, I began taking fish oil pills. I started itching heavily all over my body and subsequently quit taking the pills, soon after which the itching stopped.

    Years later at 20 years old, I decided to try them again. This time, I developed hives all over my body, trouble breathing, and constricted airways. Needless to say, my reaction has become anaphylactic.

    My question is if anyone else has experienced this issue?

    I have done what seems like endless research only to find articles for people who have seafood allergies and want to take fish oil pills anyway. This is not me. I love seafood (literally all seafood), but the pills are what K.O. me.

    If anyone has found articles on this issue or if you are in the same boat, I'd love to hear from you!
