Certain Foods Trigger Allergies

If your allergy symptoms are pretty bad right now, you may need to change what you eat. Some foods are more likely to trigger allergic symptoms.

It's called 'Oral Allergy Syndrome' - a collection of symptoms according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Those who are sensitive to pollen may also experience a similar reaction when they eat raw fruits, vegetables or other foods that have a similar protein found in the pollen. If you are allergic to certain substances, certain foods may also bother your throat, top of your mouth, or your respiratory system.

Foods like apples, plums, celery, cherries and carrots may bother people with allergies to birch pollen.

For those with grass allergies, it's peaches , tomatoes, watermelon and oranges that might bug you.

And if you have ragweed allergies, bananas, cucumbers, honeydew and cantaloupe melons as well as zucchini might aggravate symptoms.

You may be able to reduce reactions from these foods, by buying them canned, cooking or baking the food, or by removing the peel.
