Allergic to Peaches???

Hi,
This is my first time on here! I think I may be allergic to peaches

I have eaten Peaches my whole life (they are my favourite fruit). We have recently moved from Victoria (Australia) to Western Australia.

Ever since we arrived here every time I eat a Peach my face gets really itchy & has started getting worse. Is this an allergy? I do get hayfever but apart from that have never had an other allergies.

Thanks

Lertie

Re: Allergic to Peaches???

It could be. Are you taking an antihistamine? And wash the fruit before eating as well. it oculd be from what's on the peach instead of the peach itself as well.

I always wash fruit before I eat it & I'm not on any antihistamine as my hayfever has been really good the last few weeks.

It must be the peaches

It's unlikely but not impossible that you have just suddenly become allergic to peaches having eaten them all your life, Even though you wash your fruit I suspect since you have moved it could be insectiside or even the fertiliser/soil etc that the peaches are grown in. Even though you wash the fruit outside these things are still absorbed into the fruit.
