I have this too! I thought I was crazy! Its worse with fruit for me - apples, pears, plums, peaches, anything like that, also raw almonds but I wouldn't say I have a nut allergy. Doesn't help if I peel the skin either. My only reaction is it makes my mouth/throat itch which is REALLY ANNOYING and can make my lips swell a little but not to a noticeable degree.
I also get it from eating carrots but its not as bad as fruit - haven't noticed with any other vegetables. If I handle/peel potatoes it makes my hands break out but not when I eat them.
I don't eat much fruit anyway so every so often I'll sacrifice the itching to enjoy a pear and I don't notice the itching as much with the carrots if I eat them with hummus or something like that. I thought I was making up these allergies!
Overall Goal! I WILL DO THIS!
Starting over December 13, 2013.
Goal to get as fit as possible for London Vacation on April 14, 2014
