This is a little off topic- but do you have pollen allergies? My son started to have swelling/ numbness of his lips, tongue and throat from eating all different types of fruit when he was about 14. Turns out it's a reaction to something in the fruit that's similar to the pollens he's allergic to. Funny thing is- it's only fresh fruits that cause a reaction. Frozen, cooked, canned- no reaction.
