See Allergist: Food allergies are typically an immediate reaction minutes to a half hour after ingestion of concerning food with symptoms ranging anywhere from hives, wheezing, itching, shortness of breath, wheezing, vomiting, or syncope (fainting). If this sounds familiar or you are concerned see an Allergist for skin or blood testing to sort things out.
Avoidance: Like any food allergy, avoidance will be the answer. But before you do that, if you are not sure you have it, talk to an allergist. Keep in mind that the current testing options (blood and skin test) are not perfect; they can overdiagnose and underdiagnose food allergy.

After raw pineapple on the island, had diarrhea for days afterwards. Does anyone know what would cause a pineapple allergy?
Can a mild allergy to pineapple lead to the same reactions/allergy to fresh grapefruit? Why would it occur?
Not usually: Although some fruits share common allergens (melon/banana, avocado/banana), pineapple and grapefruits are not known to cross react. However you may be at a higher risk of developing allergy to other citrus fruits from grapefruit allergy.See 2 more doctor answers
Your immune system: You have a tendency to develop allergies to foreign proteins in your diet. I am interested in your wine allergy. Reactions to wine are either pharmacologic - the alcohol & other ingredients care drugs that cause nasal congestion or the sulfiting agents in the wine trigger asthma. Wine is often clarified by dropping a raw egg through it. If you are very allergic to egg this could be a denominator.
Pineapple: This is not an allergy. Is it perhaps that the fruit is too acidic?
Unusual: A true allergy to pineapple is highly unusual however pineapple can cause sores in the mouth. You will need to be more specific about the allergies on your face.

My toddler had pinapple squash and she had a bad stomach again, what can you tell me about dairy/gluten allergy and IBS in toddlers?
IBS, a functional: Disorder, not a disease, can occur in kids with chronic stress, especially from physical or psychological abuse, but essentially never in toddlers. Test for milk protein & other food allergies, celiac disease, lactose & fructose intolerance before restricting a toddler's diet. Excessive juice drinking can cause diarrhea in toddlers; they need none. Limit milk & milk products to 16-2- oz./day.See 1 more doctor answer

If one is still suffering from allergies despite avoidance measures and medications, then allergy injections may be a very good option.
