One of my family reacts to bananas. This caused me to look for associated
sensitivities with banana allergy. One common approach to allergies, is to
reduce provocations of the allergy thus allowing the body to "forget" the
response over time.
"allergy to melon, watermelon, citrus fruits, tomato, and banana can be used
as a marker of profilin hypersensitivity"
The following are latex/banana associated. "The most frequent cross-reaction
is to banana"
Items associated are:
Food items (88% chance of at least one) OR in shampoos or lotions
Inhalant Allergens (12% chance of at least one)
- Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus,
- birch pollen,
- timothy grass pollen,
- mugwort pollen,
- cat and dog epithelium,
- Aspergillus fumigatus
- Cladosporium herbarum
- "plant foods containing these putative allergens that are consumed
after cooking are not usually associated with the latex-fruit
