Foods that trigger OAS can become true food allergies... I used to only get oral allergy symptoms from raw apples -- swelling/bleeding gums, itchy mouth (apple cross-reacts with birch pollen, which is one of my worst tree pollen allergies) -- but now I can't even smell an apple without feeling sick/nauseated and getting itchy in my mouth/nose.
