This evergreen tree (in a family that includes Cashew, Pistachio and Poison ivy) has been cultivated for over 6,000 years. It is native to Southeast Asia and Indo-Malaysia. Some 35 Mangifera species grow in Southeast Asia, but many are now cultivated or have become naturalised in tropical and sub-tropical regions throughout the world. Mango may result in hypersensitivity reactions in Mango-sensitised individuals. Adverse reactions may occur as a result of ingestion of Mango or contact with the skin of Mango. Allergy to Mango as a result of cross-reactivity to Latex has been described. Among the symptoms reported in individual cases are urticaria, facial swelling, angioedema, pruritis of the eyes and/or mouth, more-generalised pruritis, abdominal cramping, erythema, and dermatitis. Respiratory complaints include wheezing, dyspnoea, and asthma. Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen. Enjoying a mango
