itchy red welts came up after sushi

User Profile
Hello, so recently I had to go out and get a haircut and I did and I asked my parents if I could go eat some sushi as a snack in the mall court and they gave me money and my sister and I ordered spicy salmon roll. After I ate we went home and I was fine but when I woke up the next day I got very itchy. My itches came from behind my armpits beside my nipples, on my bladder and on the side of my hips and behind my knees. They didn't do anything besides bugged me really bad I started scratching and soon it became red and welts came up.

I am NOT allergic to anything my doctor told me. I also used my moms prescribed dry skin cream it contains whole bunch of creams mixed tropical cream. It doesn't help a lot but does make it less itchier

I am a 14 year old boy going through puberty and never had a itching like this before or hives.

Thank you for asking!
I believe what you got is a typical presentation of urticaria ad simple antihistamines with some topical steroid ointments would help.Seek a dermatologist to sort out the etiology as it might be correlated with your recent adventure of outside food intake, a place where you can not trust the hygiene and hypersensitivity of any ingredient.Any ways no worries get some help and enjoy your life. I would suggest avoid pet contact meanwhile too and trim the nails as itching might lead to some skin damage. Use permethrin ointments with clothes change daily and last but not the least consult a dermatologist and let them help you.
Good luck
