Reaction to ALL raw fruits AND vegetable

Every time I eat a raw fruit or vegetable my face starts to burn moderately and the back of arm, and my cheeks, and eyelids burn also. I now it isn't what they spray on the fruit or vegetable because i had one fresh from the tree in my backyard. It goes on for about an hour or so. I would like to know what it is and am i still safe to have fruit and vegetables raw?


--- Im almost 15 and i am at a average weight and i play tennis like a ninja. :P

Hi,

I'm not a Dr but you may be experiencing what is called OAS or oral allergy syndrome.  Oftentimes food cannot be eaten raw, but once cooked it is ok since the protein is cooked out.  But do ask an allergist and request to be tested before changing any of your habits consuming foods and avoid those known to be a trigger is my advice.
