Well, since I was a kid, bananas (especially really ripe ones) made my mouth tingle very slightly. Recently, I have been eating lots and lots of bananas (just ran the Chicago Marathon…ouch!) and today and yesterday after eating a banana my entire mouth itched like crazy (lips, throat, pallate) and then my scalp started to itch too, and my face!
I looked online and read that banana allergies are often associated to latex allergies as well as hay fever/pollen (which I have) and also with MANGOES, AVOCADOES, AND MELONS!!
I am freaked out! What if I become more and more allergic to my favorite foods? I LOVE avocadoes, bananas, and mangoes!
Does anyone else have a banana allergy?
