sudden onset tomato allergy
After going out a couple of days ago to pick green tomatoes, as I returned to the house, I was suddenly struck with a terrible allergy that almost closed my eyes, choked up my breathing and stuffed my nose completely. It did clear up about 8 hours later. I talked to a friend and his 45 year old son had a similar reaction to being in his tomato patch. I checked on-line and this sudden onset tomato allergy thing is happening. I wonder if anyone else on here has had a similar reaction and whether this new allergy is short lived or whether I will retain the allergy on into the future.
I ate tomatoes last evening and no reaction to eating them. It just seems to be related to the vines and leaves or possibly something else in the weeds growing in with the tomatoes. I had noticed several times earlier in the year that contact with the vines did make me itch some but nothing as severe as this was.
