Suggest treatment for allergic reaction to sea food

Hello Doctor,

My mom is a resident here in Hyderabad, she is 55years & in good health. She used to have allergic reactions to sea-food & some other food items earlier but I write to you about a recent incident which has caused concern. She was travelling Uk & USA & had eaten out....for first time this reaction was so bad that her face & body got swollen & didn't subside too much. 2 days back she came back to hyderbad & her swelling got better. But last night she had food outside & now developed terrible allergic rashes on her body & face...its itchy but not painful.

Where can we show her in Hyderabad (hi-tech city area) for this allergic reactions? Please help us. thank you

In my opinion you should see nearby doctor.
As such no definitive cure for allergic reaction.We can prescribe medicine & she will be fine but if she eats sea food again surely allergic reaction will develop hence AVOIDANCE of allergic food is only the definitive treatment.

Secondly watch out for breathlessness,wheeze,flushed face,swelling of tongue n neck if this symptoms occurs you must have to rush to emergency department as early as possible.

Please go to nearby doctor for present allergic reaction treatment.
