Oral Allergies: Foods, Symptoms, and Treatments

The body will often cross-react to certain proteins found in specific

foods for people with oral allergies. These foods contain proteins found in all organic matter including pollen which causes hay fever.

Key takeaways:

– The immune system identifies very specific proteins to fight off viruses, bacteria and other unwanted germs.

– When the body reacts to pollen-related proteins in food, the result can be itchiness and inflammation in the mouth, throat and tongue.

– Oral allergies are diagnosed through clinical and laboratory diagnostic methods.

There are no standard treatments for oral allergy syndrome other than avoiding specific foods that are associated with allergy symptoms. Careful management of diet can ensure that people with the syndrome can lead otherwise normal lives.
