I had a bad reaction to raw apples about a year ago and was told I had oral allergy syndrome. I have not eaten a raw apple since but can eat applesauce etc. no problem. I have also had smaller reactions to raw peaches and plums but again, I can eat cooked ones no problem.

I had a small reaction the other day and I think it was from avocado. I came home and googled it, and sure enough, avocado is in the birch family, so it seems likely this was the issue.

I am worried now because other foods I enjoy are also in the birch family. If I started reacting to banana, I would have only like two fruits left I could eat! I have been eating banana with no problems that I know if, but then again, I had 25 years of eneventful apple eating before this suddenly came up, so...

Any tips? Suggestions? Anyone else dealing with this?

Not sure if mine is OAS but sometimes I can eat fruits without problem like now :) but in the summer - either when pollen is out or eating more fruit - I get itchy mouth with some so then I stop eating them (apple, banana, grapefruit, peach, pear).

I can't eat apples with the skin on but I can if I peel them first.
Grapes unless I wash them really well and even then it's hit or miss.

Fichbot-don't go borrowing trouble. Just because you can't eat some fruits from that family doesn't mean you will develop an allergy to all of them. Just take it day by day. :)
