Being allergic to some trees could cause you to react to certain foods.

It happens because the tree pollen is similar to the protein in some fruits, vegetables and nuts.1Your immune system gets confused and can’t tell the difference between the two. Eating these foods may cause your mouth or face to itch or swell. These foods may include apples, cherries, pears and more. This is called oral allergy syndrome (OAS). Birch and alder trees cause the most OAS food reactions.

In some cases, your tree pollen allergy may cross-react with some nuts, love peanuts or almonds.

If you own mouth itching or swelling while eating nuts, you could own a more serious, life-threatening reaction calledanaphylaxis, which is common with nut allergies. If this happens to you, call your doctor correct away.
