Usually, oral allergy syndrome is a mild form of food allergy. It rarely causes a severe reaction. If you have itching or hives all over your body after eating fruit, talk to your doctor. This may indicate a more serious problem."
This must really be terrible to deal with - Please post back again and let me know how you are doing.
Hi Teri and Bmbdigity!!!
I'm not really sure what Oral Allergy Syndrome is, but for the last year and half since I've become allergic to most foods, fruits, etc. I have had a rash around my nose that seems to flare up more when I've been in the sun.
I really think it's caused by allergic reactions.
Sorry, I can't help any.....
It's good to see you again - sorry to hear about the rash!! Is your Dr. aware of this?, is there some type of creme that he can recommend to try?
Wishing you a great day!!
The sides of my face still swollen so will see the Dr this afternoon.
It hurts too much to eat so If I can't get it thru a straw,forget it,lol.Been keeping vasoline around my mouth to keep the crusts from getting so hard.
Hi. I too have OAS. I just found this out a couple of months ago. A little over a year ago, I ate an apple with peanut butter and my throat swelled up to where I was gasping for breath. I called my mom to ask her what to do(and I could barely talk) and she suggested drinking a soda. That did the trick, thank goodness she knew what to do! Anyway, I thought I was allergic to peanut butter and stopped eating it. Coincidentally, I didn't eat apples after that either, and then recently someone told me about OAS. When I looked it up on the internet, it described the symptoms(itchy hands when peeling raw fruit, itchy throat when eating raw fruit) of which I have had for a while. I never heard of OAS, but I am so glad I was told about it. Glad to know there are others out there with it too. I am so disappointed that I can't eat the fruits that I love anymore. Yesterday I ate cherries and my throat got itchy, and today I ate a plum, which my throat is still itching from. That is what brought me to this site today. I guess I have to keep a list now of fruits to avoid
