Hi Jessica - welcome back to SP and welcome to our team.

Peaches make my lips itch too, but not if I peel them first. However they are o.k. eaten skin intact, if cooked. I have no problems with nectarines.

Hi,

my name is Jessica and I am new here. I am trying spark people again. I also have an latex allergy. I am also allergic to bananas, kiwi, raw potatoes, seasonal allergies, ragweed and pineapple. at one time years ago, my allergist saidi was pretty much allergic to everything!! even grapes and citrus. I got a new allergist and she said it could be OAS -Oral allergy syndrome which is more of an annoyance than a true allergy. It can happen anywhere in the digestive system from your mouth to your lower intestine/bathroom habits. I just avoid what really bothers me like dairy/lactose, and fragrances. lemons, limes, and peaches make my lips itch if they are in season and eat too many but if they are canned fruit they are ok.

Good luck with the dietician and I think you have a good start with the list of foods. Let us know what she says.

This list is the first time I saw that has cherries on it. The allergist told me to look online for more foods to avoid because it can be so broad. These are the foods from the allergist and I believe Wikipedia?, but not sure. The ones marked with an * are from the allergist. Many are on other lists.
Avocado*
Banana*
Chestnut
Kiwi
Apple*
Carrot*
Celery*
Melon
Papaya
Potato*
Tomato*
Peach*
Cucumber*
Cantaloupe*
Watermelon*
Flaxseed*
Bell peppers*
Pineapple
Mango
Passion fruit
Fig
Strawberry
Soy

I am trying to find a dietitian 😊

I just saw the whole thread and how the sites don't have everything, but I agree with the person who said to speak with a registered dietician. They hopefully have more information, but sounds like it's the foods have proteins that resemble the ones found in latex. That person may not have everything either so you may have to take all these lists and combine into one big one.

Also realize this could be like GERD. So like with GERD, there's a long list of stuff you shouldn't eat if you have it, but how they affect people differ. Like I know some people who have GERD and they can eat onions with no problems. I get violently ill if I eat too many onions, however, I don't have as big of a reaction with tomatoes. I can actually eat my Italian foods once or twice a week without too many issues. It may be the same way with food and all trial and error.

That is so wild. Everyone thought it was weird that I was allergic to bananas and watermelon. Have you received similar reactions? Any ways, I did a search and found this article that talks about the foods to avoid if you are allergic to latex.

Foods to Avoid
People who are allergic to latex products may also be allergic to certain foods. This is because the proteins found in these foods resemble, to a large extent, the proteins present in latex rubber. Heres a list of foods to avoid.

Tomatoes
Papayas
Carrots
Apples
Potatoes
Watermelon
Celery
Figs
Peaches
Cherries
Strawberries
Plum
Pineapple

Bananas, avocados, kiwi, and chestnuts are the 4 most common foods that can produce a latex-allergy response. Compared to the above list of foods, people taking the 4 fruits mentioned here are at a higher risk of suffering from a latex-allergic reaction.

Yes, my doctor was thinking it was due to a pollen allergy at first. I didn’t react to the skin test for pollens though, so we looked at latex and BAM!

I do not have an allergy to latex, but I am allergic to bananas and melons of all kinds including watermelon. One of my doctors told me it's because of my ragweed allergy.

Perhaps it is then best to talk with a Registered Dietitian so that you get reliable information.

Yes, there is a lot of information, but not everything is accurate. For example, some sites don’t have peaches and cucumber on their list, yet both are on the list from the allergist. On the other hand kiwi is a well known latex food that wasn’t on his list. He told me his list wasn’t complete, but were the ones marked. Basically I could react to just about anything.

Does anyone else have an allergy to latex and latex foods (kiwi, banana, avocado, etc)? I'm trying to figure out what fruits and veggies are most likely to be safe to eat.
