Peach allergy is a condition that causes an allergic reaction when you consume peaches or fruits with the same protein formation. Most people who suffer from this condition are allergic to an allergen found in peaches, known as 9-kd protein. It belongs to the group of lipid transfer proteins.
9-kd protein is the only allergen recognised by patients allergic to peach but not sensitised to birch pollen. Due to the similarity between a protein in birch pollen and peach, people who are allergic to one develop an allergy to the other.
Food allergies are usually caused by the body's immune system identifying the proteins or other substances as potential threats. As a result, it triggers a response in the form of an allergic reaction. This is also known as cross-reactivity and takes place with several food items.
People who experience an allergic reaction after eating peaches may suffer from Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS) or Pollen Food Allergy Syndrome (PFAS). Under this condition, your immune system cannot recognise or differentiate between proteins of similar components to those of pollens or allergens.
Some of the symptoms of a peach allergy are:
If you experience these symptoms, you should consult a doctor immediately and opt for a peach allergy test.

Each of these plans is designed specifically for your allergy levels and severity. Additionally, you must actively work on preventing your exposure to food allergens that may cause an allergic reaction in your body. Exposure reduction is one of the best and most common treatment plans to deal with a peach allergy.
