Since a small child my husband has been referd to as "allergic to iodine". He has never been tested for it but his lips and throat swell everytime he eats shellfish or iodized salt. I reciently found out that it is extremely rare for anyone to actuall be allergic to iodine. if anyone has any thoughts or answers i would love to hear them, thanks.
