Are allergies from pollen exposure something you need to deal with year after year? You may already know that you can take allergy medication, avoid grassy areas, and stock up on eye drops, but are you aware that you may be triggering your allergies by making a very simple mistake: eating the wrong kinds of fruit.

As much as 70% of people who deal with allergies from pollen have a bad reaction to eating certain foods. If you’ve ever struggled to breathe after eating an orange, or developed an itchy mouth after enjoying a fresh, crisp apple, you could have a condition called oral allergy syndrome, or OAS – an allergic reaction to raw fruits and vegetables that have proteins similar to certain pollen.

Many people know they have reactions to certain foods, but never make the connection between their symptoms and seasonal allergies.
