Eating melons can trigger allergies

Did you know?

People with ragweed allergy may be symptomatic when they eat melons, banana, cucumber, and zucchini? Cooking the fruit or vegetable often reduces or alleviates symptoms. Birch trees are another important trigger of allergy symptoms.
Fall allergies may present with sneezing, stuffy or runny nose, and post-nasal drip. Some people also complain of itchy, red, watery, and swollen eyes. Worsening nasal symptoms may lead to coughing and trigger asthma symptoms. In some people, ragweed allergies may also trigger oral allergy syndrome, where the body’s immune system becomes confused and triggers an allergic response.
