On the one hand I've read that eating fresh pineapple can possibly help with pollen allergies and then the next thing I read is that pineapple is high histamine.

I'm so confused about what I should avoid.

(I think that that I have a sulfite sensitivity and also possible histamine intolerance, seasonal allergies, and nickel allergy. Rash around mouth is a symptom that I'm trying to deal with right now.)

Welcome Marlyns.

There is so much good and bad information on what to eat or not to eat.

The fastest and best way of finding normal allergies is to see an allergist and get the usual skin tests. The blood tests are not highly accurate.

The best, and cheapest way to find odd allergies like sulfites is the food journal. Put that in the search box at the top of the page for hours of reading!

I eat pineapple fresh and canned and have not noticed any difference in my allergies, but now I am taking the shots. I react to histamine on skin test.

Have you been eating pineapple and then noticed the rash? How about strawberries? They're in season and also cause lots of around the mouth rashes.

Mouth rash can also be just dryness from cold weather. Cure is using petroleum jelly or one of the sticks at least twice a day.

Let us know how it turns out.

Hi Marlyns, welcome... I'm a newbie too.

I have to avoid all sugars in general, but do know that the pineapple core is a natural anti-inflammatory. I have been doing local bee pollen since mid last year, and I have less head congestion. My understanding is that getting the pollen from a local/neighborhood hive is the key.

I haven't had any strawberries for a while and will have to test them at some point. But, in the past (before I was aware of these possible sensitivities) I remember that I questioned if I happened to be reacting to strawberries. That was quite a long time ago.

about honey ... I have started using honey more frequently if I need to use a sweetener. We've been baking bread and other things from scratch, so am trying to watch all ingredients in terms of sulfites and histamine.

Thanks to you both for your comments.

Make sure you buy American honey from a good company. Foreign honey is often adulterated, according to recent news reports.
