Causes Swollen Lips After Eating Mangoes That Have Not Been Washed?
I want to ask, yesterday I just ate a little mango that my mother didn’t wash and suddenly my lips swelled. What is the cause of the mango that was not washed?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Your condition can occur due to various possibilities, and it can be related or not to the mango you consume. Among the possibilities is that you have an allergy to the mango, or the chemicals it contains. For example, if a pesticide is sprayed on the mango, you can experience allergies or irritation due to the pesticides. If there is no connection, it could be due to insect bites that you are not aware of, due to the use of cosmetics, or certain infections.
However, this possibility can not be confirmed if you do not do a direct inspection. So that if the swelling is still there, check yourself to a dermatologist, or at least a general practitioner, so you can check the condition directly. That way, misunderstandings can be avoided, and the handling you will receive can be more precise.
Meanwhile, avoid anything that you suspect is a trigger like the mango until it is declared safe by a dermatologist, cold compresses on the swelling if it still exists and do not apply or consume any medicine without doctor's advice. So, hopefully answering your question.
