Yes, it’s possible to be allergic to virtually anything including apples. Your doctor can run allergy test to see if you are. Any comments?

    Aug 17, 2008 I went to the Dr’s, and they said I had developed an allergy to apples, So, it is possible to develop a sudden allergy, such as yours with dogs.

    Wow! I have the same issue. For me, I have what is called oral allergy syndrome, where I get hives on my lips, tongue and my throat feels funny/itchy and I feel like I get really bad heartburn. This happens if I eat raw apples, but cooked or processed in any way, they are fine. This is because the proteins present in the apple that trigger my response are denatured (change shape) when cooked and my body no longer reacts badly to them. Peeling them does not help me at all, and if I touch raw apple flesh and then, say, rub my eye, my eye swells up. I have tons of tree allergies and my allergist told me that because of this, I am probably allergic to fruit trees. Fruit trees arent pollinated through the air like regular trees, but by insects, so allergy testing for fruit trees is never done. I have the same reactions to fresh cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, and pears. Give them to me any way but fresh (canned, cooked, etc) and I am fine. I had skin testing done with the fresh fruit, and I did have positive skin tests with them. Funny, I never had allergies or this problem until my early 20s. It sucks because I grew up eating lots of fruit and loved it and it is so hard now because I cant eat it. As the years have gone by, the reaction has gotten worse and my doctor told me to be careful because it could progress to an anaphylactic reaction. You may want to contact a local allergist if you want skin testing or more information about potential allergies. Everyone thinks I am so weird because this is not a very common problem. Hope this was helpful! Oh, and I did try fruit wash, organic, and peeling them to help but to no avail. I am hopelessly allergic!

    You have oral allergy syndrome. It is linked to pollen allergies. I think apples are related to birch trees. Are you also allergic to tree pollen?

    Allergy testing in not completely accurate in diagnosing food sensitivities, of foods that derive from pollinating plants or fungus, such as apples and mushrooms.
