We deal w/ OAS here too - easier to manage in that it likely wont' result in a severe reaction, but it means so many more foods to avoid.

Is your 5yo IgE allergic to citrus or OAS/cross reactive allergic to citrus? My ds was allergic to citrus as a toddler, but outgrew it. But it was not OAS since it was systemic/gi symptoms.

How grateful I am to read this article today! Just last night, my 3 yr old granddaughter, who has severe allergies to sunflower, nuts (except almonds) dairy, eggs, peas, etc, ate an unpeeled fresh peach. She had a bit of redness around her chin in spots, but no swelling of the lips, tongue, eyes or mouth. She had these little coughs so we watched her closely to make sure it didn't turn into anaphylaxis. Before bed, she takes .5 mil of zyrtec for seasonal allergies and she was only 30 minutes...

So glad that reaction resolved quickly. Any reaction, no matter how slight, should be followed up with her doctor. They are the best person to advise on next steps like trying peaches peeled or even canned peaches to see if that is tolerated. My daughter has OAS and her reactions do vary by the pollen season as well as whether the fruit is peeled/cooked.
