Allergy To Orange Juice
Not necessary: Allergy to oranges (including juice) can present as itching, hives, wheezing, vomiting, diarrhea and less likely anaphylaxis.

Can i give freshly squeezed orange juice to my 7 month old?I hv heard citrus fruits should not be given before one year.Is it true? Why?
