In brief: Relation to food?

Sounds like "oral allergy syndrome.
" it is an allergic reaction to usually fresh fruits, nuts, & veggies. Most folks have a history of allergic rhinitis-hay fever. It is considered a "true" allergy with the scientific name-ige type 1 mediated response. 60% of sufferers also have a cross reaction between foods and inhalative allergens. Elimination diet followed by food challenge makes the diagnosis.
