Avoid offending food. Oral allergy syndrome due to allergic antibody (ige) to pollen which cross-reacts with heat labile proteins in raw fruits/vegetables e.g. Birch pollen ige cross-reacts with apple, peach, etc. Heating the fruit/vegetable destroys the cross-reacting proteins. Avoid the offending foods when raw; can be eaten cooked/canned. Sometimes allergy injections decrease pollen ige so can tolerate raw fruit.
