In brief: Yes
Many allergies to foods can improve or go away with strict avoidance of the food.
Carrot usually causes mouth symptoms after they are eaten raw and is related to cross reactivity with birch tree pollen. Birch tree is the primary allergy in this case. This is called oral allergy syndrome.
