Foods to Avoid for Pollen Allergies - Part 2


This is a continuation of Part 1 where we discussed about the foods to avoid for ragweed pollen allergies. If you have grass pollen allergies, the following food may cross react with grass pollen and trigger the oral allergy syndrome:

Celery

Tomato

Peaches

Oranges

Melons

Cherries

Figs

Watermelon

Wheat

Peas

Pears

Peanuts

Swiss Chard

Kiwis

This looks like a long list of food, does it mean you need to avoid all of them? Of course not! Bear in mind these food and only limit or avoid them if you notice your body having allergic reactions to the food. Your body may not react to all of these food even though you are allergic to grass pollen.
