My 16 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with oral allergy syndrome. Will a daily regimen of local honey help resolve her allergies?

In brief: No evidence

Oral allergy syndrome is caused by cross reactions between pollen (causing hay fever or allergic rhinitis) and fresh fruit.
According to the natural medicines comprehensive database, there is insufficient evidence that one tablespoon of honey (any form, including unpasteurized) helps allergic rhinitis better than placebo. Therefore i would expect similar results with oral allergy syndrome.

In brief: Avoid cause

com/allergies/features the basic rule: if a food makes you uncomfortable, don’t eat it! cooking may help. It often breaks down or alters the trigger proteins so that the immune system doesn't target them. Peeling fruits such as apples may also help some people, because most trigger proteins are in the peel. Canning also breaks down those proteins, so canned fruit may be an option.
