Definitely wouldn't mess with this. My daughter used to love cantaloupes and one Sunday she had a slice before church. Less than half way thru the service she was covered in hives from head to toe and her lips were swelling. Since then her food tolerances have been trial and error. She can eat potatoes in any form but gets hives if she peels them. (Go figure!) She had skin reactions to several foods that she still could eat, and hives and vomiting from foods that were ok on the scratch test. I'd just say "no thanks" to the bananas and send mom to these sites:Banana allergiesWhat you need to know about allergies to bananasbanana allergy ?
By the way, if you ARE allergic to bananas there is a good chance you may be allergic to latex as well. This could be life threatening if you get braces or have to go to the hospital and are surrounded by latex dust. Please explain to mom that this might me serious.
