I was talking with my mom the other day and she mentioned my brother is probably allergic to watermelon. She said that whenever he eats it, his mouth and throat get numb/tingly. Well, I have same symptoms! I've eaten melons for 25 years and had always had these symtoms but never realized I was supposedly allergic. So, if there are any doctors out there, since I love melon, if I continue to eat it will it get worse. Anyone else allergic to melons?
