Latex Allergy and Bananas – How are They Related?

As far as we know TJ does not have a latex allergy; however, I know of several children who do including some of my students. Therefore, I found the following two articles extremely informative and interesting as they are related to cross-reactivity of allergies. While today may be rainy, check out these links and brighten our days with more smiles…

    I am allergic to latex. It causes rash and burning 😳 I’m glad you shared this because I just had a tomato and cheese corn tortilla wrap for lunch and have stabbing pain in my chest and sometimes when I eat tomatoes, celery, bananas and peanut butter and even avocados I get this similar feeling. Even more interesting I have a severely numb sensation in my mouth and tongue and feel super weird when I eat guacamole and I assumed it was because the jalapeño but it could be the avocado! 😨 Red and green bell peppers also cause me severe indigestion overall an especially celery!
    Interesting share! Thank you!
