  • I seem to have a reaction to all Fruits but unsure

    I am allergic to Latex and I am allergic to all the food allergies linked to Latex but I also seem to have a reaction to nearly every other fruit I eat, but I am not sure if its an allergy or the amount of acids in the fruits. I get the itchy burning sensation on the roof of my mouth and thoat and my lips with them all. Also if it an allergy does anyone now where else I can get the vitamins I need other than taking vitamin suppliments??

  • Have you tried fruit that's local (no pesticides)? It may be a reaction to something other than the fruit itself. I think it'd be odd to be allergic to **all** fruits, although being allergic to a specific one wouldn't be unusual.


    • You will need to see a specialist to confirm an allergy such as "all fruits". Apples and strawberries are common fruit allergies but all fruits seems a bit much. See your GP and then get a referral to an allergist if the GP cannot do the tests themselves.
      There are those who believe that dictionaries should not merely reflect the times but also protect English from the mindless assaults of the trendy.


      • I agree with IAS. The only way to empower yourself and know how to truly handle your diet and lifestyle is to get yourself allergy testing. I had it done and it has changed so much. I thought I was allergic to dust. Turns out I'm not allergic to dust mites at all, but to mold and DOGS! I live with a dog, sleep with one every night, and never had any idea I was allergic. I couldn't figure out why I was sick all the time and I was treating myself in all the wrong ways. Once I learned my true allergies, I started taking medications that were much better suited for my allergies and now **knock on wood** I'm rarely ever ill.

        Get yourself tested.
