My youngest can not eat apples or grapes w/o getting diarrhea and vomiting. Has anyone else come across this? I am going to be getting him tested for allergies since he has skin sensitivities and his older brother was tested and was allergic to all 42 things they tested. But the apples and grapes are impossible since most juices use one or the other or maybe both as the base.

This is so interesting. My 14 1/2 month daughter had eaten pears and apples as an infant, Imade all the apple and pear sauce myself, I cooked the apples and pears and she never seemed to have an issue. After the 1st of this year, she was about 9 months, when ever i would feed her apples or pears, about 2 hrs after she went to bed she would wake up vomiting, and carry one for about 2 hrs. I didn't really notice the pattern for a while, I kept wondering "what is wrong with her, she's an aweful pukey baby", then we all had the stomach flu early April and by then I had kinda noticed the pattern, I mentioned it to her Dr., b/c they offered the B.R.A.T. diet for us all and I told him the pattern I was figuring out. We decided to skip the apples/pears for a while, Wed. night of this past week I tried pears again, this time uncooked, and sure enough 2 hrs after she went to sleep she woke up vomiting for 2 hrs, on top of losing power in the middle of her 2nd bath..LOL!! Anyway, I kinda figured she must have an apple/pear allergy/intolerance. My 3 1/2 yr old son gets diahrrea with apple juice, but can eat apples and pears. Thank you for sharing this info...I guess we will just avoid them, sadly!!

Be sure that your little ones have their allergy testing done after 2 years of age. Any testing done before then can be very inaccurate.

But, my son can drink grape juice without a problem but he has the same issue (diarrhea) with eating grapes.

My son eats a ton of apples without a problem but seems to get diarrhea and a rash on his bottom from apple juice. Does anyone else have this problem?

Almost 100 % of sensitivities clear-up after a Liver cleanse.

Read up about it at many Internet sites.

It really works, although most people do not beleive in it.

When the liver is congested and clogged up, many problems arise, as the liver can not detoxify the toxic chemicals we ingest.

My son is allergic to apples as well. He vomits within one hour of ingesting. Interestingly though he can eat applesauce and applejuice (pasteurized only) and no cider. I have the oral allergy to apples but do not vomit.

Try checking out this website:



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_allerg...



Fruit sensitivities are often misdiagnosed.  Diarrhea, vomiting and skin sensitivities are all symptoms of Oral Allergy Syndrome.  My daughter and I both have it.  When it comes to grapes and apples, often the allergy is actually to Alder or Birch pollen.  The body mistakes the protein from certain fruits with the pollen.   Believe it or not they are structurally similar and the body cannot tell the difference when certain foods are eaten.



My daughter and I have an allergy to Ragweed Pollen and cannot eat: Bananas, mango, apricot, melons, citrus, cucumber, zuchinni, dandilion, chamomile tea......



Undiagnosed and untreated OAS can lead to severe asthma.  I would ask your doctor.



It is hard to explain in a few words.  Check out the website.

Thank you for the suggestion, but yes, I've even tried that. Actually the apples we have gotten organically seem to bother him more. I think because they are so fresh, but I'm not totally sure. We're going to be heading to the allergist soon to get all this figured out. I know that its a long shot, but I'm wondering if he isn't allergic to salicylates (the stuff in aspirin) since most of the stuff that seems to bother him is listed on the products containing that.

have you tried organic apples or grapes? If there are pesticides that are absorbed into the skin of the fruit, then maybe that is bothering him. May not be as apparent in a juice as they are not directly eating the skin.
