She said: “My whole face was swollen, my skin was burning.

“I began to lose my voice and my throat felt dry. It was terrifying.”

The actress shockingly revealed: “If I had waited a little longer to take the medication, I probably would have been intubated.”

Jeniffer’s daughter Lara was born last December, as reported on Need to Know.

She told of the terrifying thoughts that went through her head at the time of the reaction.

She said: “While all of this was happening, all I could think was, ‘How will my daughter eat if I’m not there to breastfeed her?’”

Jeniffer hails from São Paulo, Brazil, and is also a singer.

She has always eaten seafood, but this is the first time she has developed symptoms.

She warned her fans: “Be really careful with seafood, even if you’re not allergic.

“And if you start feeling any signs of an allergic reaction, rush to the hospital.”
