About 6 years ago, I noticed that whenever I ate fruits like banana and mangoes, my throat was itchy and my stomach does not felt good. I usually throw up.
I thought that probably my throat was sensitive to the chemicals used to accelerate the ripening of fruits or maybe insecticides. But I found out later that even home grown fruits that were insecticide free caused me the same problem.
This problem developed to any fruit I try to eat -- both local or imported fruits. Even a small bite of fruit would trigger itchy throat and later throwing up.
I used to love fruits. Now I cannot eat any fruits or fruit juice. I can only eat "canned" fruits.
Is there a cure to my "fruit allergy?" Please help.
I would suggest seeing a board certified allergist to make sure this is an allergy or a different type of sensitivity. Right now, avoidance is the best action to take to keep from having a reaction. Once you know the specific cause, the allergist can give you appropriate medications to relieve the symptoms and hopefully prevent them.
