Anyone else have a pumpkin allergy? :/

I never have anything to do with pumpkin til Halloween. I forget EVERY YEAR! My reaction isn't all too severe, some small hives, itchyness, and my hands are on fire and a little swollen. But benadryl takes care of it.

What is your experience with it?

  • I have a friend that has a pumpkin allergy. She breaks out into a rash if she touches the insides of a pumpkin. She uses long elbow length latex gloves with sleeves tucked into them so the insides of the pumpkin doesn't touch her skin.

  • Do you know where she gets those out by chance? All I know of are the gloves you can use for dishes, but I don't wanna use that for my pumpkins, you know?
