Are you suffering from a dental allergy? If so, you may be wondering if there are any foods that can help. The answer is yes! Certain ingredients can help reduce the symptoms of a dental allergy. These ingredients include some of the most common food allergens, such as peanuts, pine nuts, egg and milk protein. According to Tobin, you may only have problems with one or two foods.
For example, bananas and cantaloupe may cause an allergic reaction, while eggplant and squash may not. The table below shows pollen allergies, as well as the fruits, vegetables, nuts and spices that are susceptible to pollen allergies. If a person is allergic to alder pollen, they are more likely to cross-react with the foods that are on the alder list. This is known as Food Pollen Allergy Syndrome (PFAS), or Oral Allergy Syndrome. It is caused by the cross-reaction of allergens found both in pollen and in certain fruits, vegetables or raw nuts.
If you have hay fever and your mouth or throat itches after eating certain raw fruits or vegetables and some nuts, you may have symptoms of PFAS. Many people with pollen allergies may not realize that their food allergies could be due to hay fever. So, if you have seasonal allergies and want to know what other foods, known as trigger foods, can make your allergies worse, it's important to be aware of the potential cross-reactions.
