I have had fruit allergy's for at least 3 years. I have allergy's to all fruits but lime and kiwi. and of course those two are the ones i don't care for. I love fruits and so i eat them and then get sick. I feel a swelling in the throat and my stomach has a weird hurting feeling. I do not eat apples, cherries, pears, plums, or peaches. And i am sure that there are more that i do not eat. but those are the main ones. If i eat to much fruit in about from 3 days to 2 weeks i get this itchy stuff on my feet, hand, or elbows. some times i have it at all places other times only one place. It looks similar to poison ivy. Right now i have it the worse that i have ever had it before on my foot. I cant wear shoes, and can hardly wear flipflops do to the itch. i have had it for about a week now. if you have any advice it would be nice because i love fruit. thanx in advance.

Hey Vollyball Lover!

Welcome to the board!!

Having a fruit allergy sounds terrible! I would be so sad if I couldn't eat fruit. But even though you love it, I would suggest that you *stop* eating all fruit and talk with your doctor. You may want to consider having an allergy test. If you've already had these tests and you know that you have an allergy (not just a sensitivity) then you should already be aware of the dangers of going into anaphylactic shock after eating fruit. Part of this reaction is having your thoat swell, inhibiting breathing or even stopping it all together. The fact that you notice your throat begining to swell certainly makes me concerned for you. It's possible that you're only allergic to some fruits and just very sensitive to others. If this is the case, then you'll only have to avoid the ones you're allergic to and eat the others on the very rare occasion (my doctor warned me that the reaction gets worse the longer your away from the allergin).

For relief now though, have you tried Benadryl? Taking a maximum recommended dose will make you quite tired, but should help with the itch. :)

i have considered taking benedryl but it makes me extremely tired. i have taken it in the evenings already for grass allergy but i was ready to go to bed so i try not to take benedryl. i do not have a doctor do to having moved about 6 years ago. i had gone to one doctor but really did not like him. i have not taken any test's because we know what causes it. i was going to have a test for this itchy stuff but then figured out what it was so decieded not to. thanks for the reply

Have you tried organic fruit?  I'm wondering if there's a possibility it's the sprays and chemicals that are on the fruit that you are reacting to.  I've heard of this before and when the person ate organic only, she didn't have the reaction. 
 
Just a thought.  I hope you find what works for you.
