Has your child ever had an allergic reaction to pineapple? If so, what were the symptoms?

My daughter broke out in hives on one arm and her cheeks after eating pineapple. I know it's a common allergy, my step-niece is allergic to it. I'm wondering what the reaction looks like.

  • My sister and I both were allergic to it growing up. It just made our tongues hurt and swell.

    I avoid it now, not sure about her.
