OK so recently I found out that I actually have been having allergic reactions to a lot of different fruit ever since I was little…but I didn’t realize they were allergic reactions.
So recently, I actually developed an allergy to plums. The entire plum, not just the skin….because apparently you can develop food allergies in later life. Who knew? Yeesh. I can still drink plum juice, incidentally, but actually eating plums gives me hives around my lips and chin (yes, even dried chinese plums. Sigh. No traditional chinese soups for me anymore…)
So it turns out I have ALSO been dealing with Oral Allergy Syndrome for my entire life without realizing it as well! Basically, this means that a lot of different types of fruit for me are uncomfortable to eat. Apples, pears, and generally anything you eat off a core make my lips feel swollen and create a stinging, itchy sensation around my lips and chin (anywhere that touches the skin of the apple or the juice). IT’s worse when I eat an apple or a pear without slicing it (more contact on the skin of the fruit, and hence, pollen). I talked to my parents (who are pediatricians) and they were basically like “it’s not that serious right now, but it could get worse if you expose yourself to more, or it could better. But you’re living alone now…so why risk it?”
But the point of this is that i HAD NO IDEA THAT THIS SENSATION WAS NOT NORMAL. I literally thought that EVERYBODY felt this way when they bit into an apple or a pear! Like it was just a “oh I guess it’s a cold surface making me uncomfortable” type of thing. Because it really wasn’t that bad when I was little (it’s definitely worse now), and I blamed it on things like chapped lips and eczema (which i also had when I was younger).
But I was thinking…how many other people think that this is normal or just a weird little thing? (I had a boyfriend in college who was like “yeah, eggs make my mouth itch but like it’s not a big deal….uh, yes, yes, it is. Oral allergy reactions like that are an enormous deal because they can block your airways with swollen tongues and stuff.)
This is something that not a lot of people really talk about or know about when it comes to food allergies. People tend to not realize that allergies aren’t static and that they can get better or worse. I’ve definitely noticed my OAS getting worse as I get older and older. So…watch out! If anything makes your skin feel funny when you eat it…talk to your doctor!
100% I used to think it was normal, too. When I ate bananas or apples raw I would get that itchy feeling and then feel sick to my stomach. I thought “it must be because I so rarely eat fruit” or something stupid like that. Then, last year, I finally did research and found out that I was suffering from an actual allergic reaction.
