The thing about food poisoning is that there are moments when the symptoms can occur days after you have had the food. There are some common symptoms that you will get to experience such as nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. At times, some people also experience hives especially if they have suffered from Scramboid food poisoning. This is a type of poisoning that people get when they eat spoiled or rotten fish unknowingly.

The fish may be mixed in with other food so the taste will not be evident. If you suspect that you are suffering from food poisoning, you can go to the doctor. There may be some symptoms that will pose a threat to your health.

Scombroid food poisoning can cause hives. This kind of food poisoning comes from fish that have spoiled. Hives are one of the first symptoms that could appear, in addition to all of the usual food poisoning symptoms - such as vomiting, diarrhea, and cramping in the abdominal area. Scombroid, however, tends to appear more like an allergic reaction to fish. Take heart, lovers of fish. It doesn’t mean you’re allergic to fish. It just means you got a bad fish.


If you’re worried about your health after eating a fish, a trip to the doctor wouldn’t hurt anything. If it’s nothing more than mild food poisoning, the doctor can give you a few tips on how to rough it out. However, if you’re in serious danger of having other symptoms or have had more serious symptoms, going to the doctor could save your life.
