Well, it took two trips to Brasil to realize that I´m allergic to mangos. The reaction this year is nowhere near as bad as last year, which I assure you was as bad as it gets, aside from constricted airways. It happens that mango skin, and sap, has the same chemical component as poison ivy, which crawls all over me every year. On a good note, I´m not allergic to Brasil. On a bad note, if I want to eat mango I´ll have to surgically remove the skin without contaminating the flesh.
I love mangos, and you´ll see many pictures of me cramming them into my mouth with the skin on. I can´t help but to laugh.
