I think it's some kind of reaction yes. Probably best to avoid them now if this is what happens every time you eat them.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

It could indicate a food allergy. As repeated episodes have occurred with consumption of the same food. It may help to maintain a food dairy and keep monitoring your symptoms. This will help to narrow the search and avoid them. Further allergic testing may be worth looking into. Here an allergy specialist may confirm the allergic reaction and can further help to desensitize you.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

I just wanted to share this as I saw the topic being strawberries and allergic reactions, my husband loved strawberries as a child and ate them all the time at large quantities.  When he got older his throat would start to swell, his face would turn red and his eyes began to water.  He couldn't eat strawberries anymore.

It wasn't until after he quit smoking that he was able to eat them again.  So it is interesting how sometimes other things that we consume or subject our bodies too might cause an adverse reaction with something else.

I too, like Seattlemom2plus' husband, used to enjoy a LOT of strawberries. Then one day my face would swell right up after eating them. I was tested and confirmed a strawberry allergy. I never smoked, still don't. I still have the allergy (among others now too).

Yeah, a lot of people don't realize just how common of an allergy the strawberry is.  I can't eat them either.  I don't get a super serious reaction, but the reaction is enough that I know not to mess with them, especially since my old man is allergic and even gets hives on occasion.  I get a sore irritated throat, which is definitely sensitive enough to be paying attention to.  I used to eat a lot of the strawberries which my parents grew themselves.  So, I know they were grown organically.  Not because my parents believed in organic over conventional, but because they wanted to save money on their gardening.  Still, in spite of their beliefs, the strawberries were organic.  Now, I can't eat strawberries any more.  Not even the best organic ones.
