I am not aware of anyone having allergic reaction to the leaves (other than poison oak). ...Read more

Is it possible the canola oil can cause inflammation of the gums and or allergic reaction in the mouth?

Is it possible the canola oil can cause inflammation of the gums and or allergic reaction in the mouth?

Unlikely: In theory anything we eat or drink could cause gum inflammation due to an allergic response, but not likely.

Ate spaghetti squash (w/olive oil, goat cheese, salt, pepper). Nose swollen inside, sinusdrainage, asthma. Allergic to squash?!? Other food allergies.

Food allergy: If you ate the squash and had an immediate reaction (minutes to 2hrs) that included hives, swelling, shortness of breath, wheeze, throat tightness, vomiting or passing out then I would be concerned for a food allergy reaction. Would make an appointment with an allergist to determine what could be the culprit foods. Bring list of ingredients eaten that meal to appointment. Avoid foods until seen. ...Read more
