In brief: 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.

In brief: Allergy Shots

Food allergy in general can't be "cured".
Avoidance is your best bet for preventing the problem. Now, allergy shots have been shown to be effective for oas is some patients, when the fruit in question has an allergen that is also seen in pollinating plants. For example, patients treated for their "birch allergy" could eventually tolerate fruits like apples.
