	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!
