anybody else have it? oral allergy syndrome, it's when fruits, vegetables and nuts bother you because they give you an itchiness in your mouth and throat, sometimes a major swelling....supposedly it can be healed easy and it's popular, but anybody have an experience with it? i never ate fruit, veggies or nuts much because of this, not like it was making me sick at all, just those feelings were real annoying....man, i could live off grapes and honey roasted peanuts so let's hope so :lol: going off gluten wouldn't even really bother me if i was able to eat those things like i couldn't before....it'd be something new

My daughter's teacher has it. She just went to the Dominican Republic on vacation with her fiance and did not have any trouble with the fruits and veggies there. Back in the US, though, same problems with OAS.

That is about all I know.

I may have it; been trying to figure it out. My mouth is always irritated. Like the sides of my tongue and the sides of the roof of my mouth, but I can't pinpoint what it is? It's so irritating. There is nothing in my mouth or on my tongue or anywhere to be found, but it's a chronic irritation. I don't know if this is OAS?

I have it. It's found in people with environmental allergies. I'm bothered by apples, peaches, cherries and nectarines. It's diagnosed via traditional allergy testing. Certain fruits have the same protein make up as certain trees so, if the tree bothers you, the fruit might too. Cooking the fruit kills the protein so, for instance, I'm fine with applesauce or apple juice but not raw apples. It's an allergy but will never cause anaphylaxis so there's no need for an epi pen. If I eat an apple, for example, my throat and mouth get extremely itchy for several hours. I don't stop breathing but it's extremely annoying. It's worse during the traditional allergy season.

I found it interesting that the person who has this went to another country had no problems with the fruit there. I wonder if the lacto-resin that we apply to even organic fruits might have something to do with it?

I've had this off and on for years, mostly from apples and cherries. I never knew there was a name for it. I used to be chemically sensitive to a lot of things. Since I've cleaned up my diet and eat more organic food and got rid of gluten, it doesn't happen as much any more. It seems that when I am feeling more sensitive and run down, it happens more often, but when I am feeling good it rarely happens anymore.

The last post reminded me of something I should have posted when I responded before. When I was first seen by my allergist he did skin testing for allergies. Out of some 90 or so items showed up positive many doctors would have stopped there and just pronounced 'environmental allergies'. This was a really savvy doctor who when he saw the results, the only thing I didn't react to was beech trees, he strongly suspected celiac and put me immediately on a elimination diet. He stated that my immune system was in overdrive due to the celiac. Since my body was at that point reactive to itself because of the gluten antibodies coursing through every tissue in my body it seemed I reacted to everything. It took a while, probably about 6 months or so but the other allergies for the most part resolved. The only things I am now reactive to are cat spit, I have one who 'nurses' on my hands as I sit at the computer, really strong perfume, and the big yew bushes in my back yard when they are in bloom. I would be hopeful of resolution of your OAS syndrome also, no certainty of course but there is a real good chance that as the last poster stated this will resolve for the most part gluten-free.
