I think I have an allergic reaction to Maple Syrup (pure)!
What's that all about
? I have only one other strange allergy and that is to tropical fruit (Mangos, papaya, pineapples, etc.) but I can eat normal fruits grown in non-tropical areas, even banannas.
The reaction I get from Maple Syrup seems to be the same as my reaction to tropical fruit. I get cold sores and a rash around my mouth. Strange enough, if I use mouth wash, the cold sores go away much faster but the rash stays for several days. It's a very painful rash that looks like bad acne.
Enough nasty stuff about
my body. Has anybody ever heard of this kind of reaction to Maple Syrup? Can you offer any reading material or way to overcome it?
I haven't spoken to an allergy doctor yet or a normal doctor because I trust the internet more ;) Humor me ok?
