Iodine Allergy?

by Linda Pearce

I can eat shellfish with no problem. Use iodized salt with no problem. I once took a Pamprin and felt like my ears were closing up an throat getting slightly swollen. Subsided within one hour. Ingredients had kelp and some iodine. Mom was allergic to iodine, could I be too?

Thank you

Linda, it certainly sounds like you are allergic to iodine. May I suggest you wear a medical wristband to show this allergy. Refer to Iodine Allergy Symptoms if you have not already done so.
