Whenever I eat apples, my throat feels like it is itchy and swollen. Could I be allergic to apples?

In brief: Yes

Some people with allergies to certain pollens like birch may experience this especially if the apple is fresh and during the spring time.
. We call this Food-Pollen allergy or the Oral Allergy Syndrome. Cooking or peeling the fruit solves the problem. You can get tested.
