Oral allergy: Most people with oral allergy syndrome can tolerate cooked fruits and sometimes peeled fruits. Avoidance of raw fruits which trigger the symptoms is best unless symptoms are minimal. Treatment of the underlying pollen allergy with immunotherapy can often help oral allergy syndrome as we'll.
