Apples?!?!

Recommended Posts

UGH.

I think Im reacting to oranges too now. I have had NO gluten and NO dairy and NO apples and NO coffee... instead of the apple I bought suynkkis orranges. Ive suspected themin the past cause they make my lips tingly but I had the scratch test and had no reaction to them in that. :blink:

I have that reaction to nuts but it came up negative on the scratch tests. It's an oral allergy, and it's usually related to seasonal allergies. If you're allergic to stuff in the air, it can cause a cross reactive reaction. (like my wording :P )

"Grass pollens allergies may cross react with melons, tomatoes and oranges."

If you get itchy in your mouth, DON'T EAT IT!! Those can get ugly real quick, and my allergist says oral allergies can get worse over time, including anaphalaxis.

BTW: scratch tests aren't really accurate for foods. They are much more accurate for environmental allergens.
