allergy to pear??
My 4 yo dd has only been allergic to peanuts, so far. She was diagnosed 6 months ago, after her first reaction ever. That's the only allergy she has.
The last few days, I've given her a raw whole pear as a snack-she's always eaten all fruits, and has had no issues. However, the last 2 pears she's eaten... she's said "her throat feels funny" afterwards. Is it possible that this is an allergy? She had no other symptoms... I didn't even do benadryl, and after 20 minutes or so, she had no complaints at all.
I figured I'd post this here, since I know people are dealing with other food allergies too... and pear is such an oddball allergy.
I'm calling the allergist, but he's 3 hours away, we have crappy insurance, etc... so I'm not sure it's worth doing all that to get tested for 1 thing. Anyone know about pear allergy? I'm guessing it's not as serious as peanut, but I'd like to know more about it. I've read some about oral allergy syndrome-is that an actual allergy, or just a sensitivity?
