  • Is an allergy to apples possible?

    Yes, this is very common in people who have seasonal allergy to birch pollen. Her immune system is recognizing cross-reacting proteins in the raw apple (also, sometimes in pears, peaches, cherries and all other "stone" fruits). This is called oral allergy syndrome. This also is associated with her being able to eat apple sauce or cooked apples without symptoms.. If this is too bothersome, have her evaluated by an allergist since allergy immunotherapy to a PRW mixture of birch pollen may be helpful. Otherwise, just have her avoid these fruits. READ MORE
