I have oral allergy syndrome. I'm allergic to most uncooked vegetables and many raw fruits. The reactions are severe enough that I can't simply eat the foods and ignore it, and allergy shots do not work for this condition. I really want to start eating more fresh produce, though. Steamed/cooked veggies get kind of boring after a while. I crave that crunchy, fresh taste and I want to have snacks that I can eat easily on the go like celery and carrots. My question is, does anyone else have this problem, and have any of you tried a mild, non-drowsy antihistamine like Zyrtec? Does it work? Pretty much every other antihistamine helps with allergic reactions but makes me crash so it's not worth it, but I haven't tried something like Zyrtec.
