    Lips swell with random foods? Allergic?

    Hello,
    I am nineteen years old and for most of my teenage years, I have noticed that my lips swell and develop small red bumps when I eat certain foods. This happens with carrots, watermelon, canteloupe, honeydew, bananas, and sometimes strange foods like mushrooms. I try to avoid eating these foods as much as possible but I love most of them, so I fall victim to it quite often. The red bumps appear within minutes and sometimes my throat feels itchy (not tight). Is there a common factor within all of these foods, or a certain condition that causes this? I don't have any other known allergies and have never visited with an allergy specialist. Thanks for any information-- I am very curious!

    Look up Oral Allergy Syndrome.
