Question?: The answer is that you will need to avoid eggplants and preferably have EpiPen (epinephrine) with you in case of accidental exposure since antihistamine won't do you much good if you have anaphylaxis .Whether other foods in the nightshade family : Tomatoes. Eggplant. Potatoes. Goji Berries. Tobacco. Peppers (bell peppers, chili peppers, paprika, tamales, Need be avoided remains controversial.
