I started having allergies to plums and peaches when I was in high school. After entering college I added all melons to the list. As I've gotten older, now 28, the allergies have progressed from the itchy mouth and throat after a few pieces to a miniscule amount causing severe breathing problems and laryngitis for a week. And now this week something else caused blisters on my lips, and a rash on my face...any idea why more and more foods are causing problems as I get older...I was under the impression I would grow out of allergies not into them. Thank you any information would be greatly appreciated.
