Four years ago I had an allergy test done. When the doctor asked if there were any foods that made my throat itch it occured to me...bannanas and watermelon. I had no idea it was allergy related at all. When I asked him why, he told me that they've discovered if you are at all alergic to ragweed, you will have a reaction to watermelon and bannanas. So when I eat watermelon, it's like I'm eating a small amount of ragweed. Does that stop me? Heck no! I loves me some watermelon!
So after eating two very large slices of watermelon, I'm laying in bed with an extremely itchy throat and savoring the flavor of watermelon.
Does anyone else have a nasty itch in the back of your throat when you eat watermelon?
