|The Peach Reaction|
The Peach Reaction: Around the age of 13-14. I ate a peach and reacted severely to it. I felt my throat close and I experienced hives all over my body. It was later that I was tested by a doctor and discovered I was allergic to every fresh fruit you could think of (Except tropical fruit like bananas and watermelon). And that peaches were ranked the highest, 4+, which is highly severe.
The Birch Tree: There's a connection between my fresh fruit and spring allergies with this tree. Its this one type of tree that grows the fresh fruits that I'm allergic to. I can't even touch the tree without reacting after.
Spring Allergies: I suffer in the spring/ summer time because thats when the trees, grass and pollen sprout. My eyes would go red, my throat would constantly feel itchy and my nose would run like a fosset.
Conclusion: Birch Trees are the connection between my fresh fruit and one of the factors contributing to my spring allergies. Luckily, my allergies are improving every summer, I have to take less and less Reactin and Benedryl. And I would like to point out these are just a few of my many allergies...
