Description

Coconuts come from the seed of a coconut palm tree, which is native to the tropics. This fruit can be used for many things. Mats and ropes can be made from the outer husks while the individuals can consume the inner white flesh and the milk. Not only do foods like desserts contain coconut, but, it is often added to many toiletry items such as cleansers, soaps, shampoos, and cosmetics. While allergies to coconuts are rare, it does occur in some people when they come in contact with the fruit or products containing coconut.  

Symptoms could include:

•  Swelling in the face, lips, or tongue

•  Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or stomach pain

•  Rash or hives, in some cases, eczema

•  Runny nose, wheezing or coughing

Positive allergy test results should be discussed with your physician.
