Alergic Reaction to Seafood from Smell?

    A couple of years ago I had either an allergic reaction or more likely, histamine reaction, to shrimp and cod. I have eaten both for years and never had a problem prior to this.

    I cooked cod today for lunch and felt my left eye starting to swell up. This was while I was cooking, not eating. I immediately washed my hands and flushed my eyes with cold water. That seemed to resolve issue.

    The obvious answer is that I touched the fish and then touched my eye, but I was careful to avoid touching my face while cooking. So that got me wondering. could it be that when I put pepper on seafood or fish, that histamine is released and the smell of pepper acts as the carrier?
