Some pollen allergists also respond to certain types of mattresses.
Are you one of the many pollen allergists in this country?
You may feel mouth and throat discomfort when eating raw vegetables or fruits.
Cross-reactions are not uncommon and occur because the allergenic substances in pollen resemble protein in the food.
Common cross-sectional reactions are:
- Beetroot allergies react to hazelnuts, walnuts, pine nuts, cashew nuts, apple, pear, peach, nectarine, cherry, plum, apricot, raw carrot, raw potato, kiwi and celery.
- Grass pollen allergists react to barley, rye, oats, wheat, legumes (such as soybeans) and melon.
- Burot pollen allergies react to celery, leek, peppers, onion, sunflower seeds, raw carrot and herbs like parsley, paprika, coriander, garlic, curry, anise and oregano.
- As a rule, pollen allergy develops first and food allergy comes later. In some, food allergy is only noticeable when pollen is in the air, while others respond to food throughout the year.
