    • Correct Answer:

    Correct! If you're allergic to ragweed, eating certain foods -- like bananas, melon, and cucumber -- can trigger symptoms. Most people who are allergic this way don't get any more than an itchy mouth. Others, though, may also get a rash. Why do they get symptoms at all? Because the body overreacts to proteins in these foods that are similar to proteins in ragweed pollen.
