I was feeding my fish freeze dried bloodworms, and suspected they
might be causing the problem so stopped using them a few days ago,
but the rashes and asthma continued. Can these antigens affect you
even after a few days?
You certainly described my problem, since I have gotten rashes from
reaching into the tank. You can bet the bloodworms will go as soon
as I get home!
If this works I owe you a beer. Or dinner. Or something!
