Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

These symptoms suggest you are allergic to the chemical commonly present in these fruits.

This can be determined by the food allergy panel.

Ripened fruits are more problematic due to the chemical changes.

You should see an allergy specialist soon.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
