I am the lucky owner of a body covered with skin that is extremely allergic to mangoes. A mango allergy isn’t what you’re thinking – it’s actually caused from the sap that’s found on the outside of the mango. Most people are actually allergic to this sap and not the actual fruit. I recorded a video when I was in the middle of my allergic suffering and thought I would share my misery with you. Isn’t that nice?? So if you ever wanted to know what it’s like to be allergic to mangoes, well then LOOK NO FURTHER!

Cheri, I would be devestated with a Mango allergy. I love asking everyone the question, “IF YOU WERE A FRUIT WHAT FRUIT WOULD YOU BE?” and I discovered that I’m a mango. Colorful on the outside, sweet, but sometimes really hard to handle. So without my mango-ness I’m not sure what I would do. Thanks so much for posting. Your a culinary inspiration.
I just shudder at the title of your post. As someone who has a (weird) allergy to citrus that came out of nowhere at age 25, I feel your pain. I just got over a horrible reaction to a mango vinegar that had lemon in it at a cooking class. Here’s to hoping that we both will never have another reaction again!
Diane! I am glad *someone* feels my pain, even if it’s second hand! :D My husband is mildly allergic to citrus too – terrible!!
Oh my gosh!! I have mango allergy too. Although this is the worst it’s ever been!! I’m so glad I watched your video bc I had on lips, then ears chin cheeks even moved all down body to feet. I must have rolled around in sap. Haha. Worst!! I have learned my lesson. No more mangoes for me. This one it was mango juice and mango twizzlers. If only they told you mango is related to poison ivy with urushiol sap!!
Worst. Anyways. Glad to see this video. Calmede down a bit. Thanks. :)
Funny and informative. :)
Oh Lin you’re so welcome!! I’m glad to hear that you’ve found some information that helped you! :D
