Avocado Causing Itchy Mouth?

I am curious if anyone else is having a similar issue with avocado...


 


I have known for a while that I have a slight allergy to avocado. When I eat it, my mouth, tongue, and throat itch for about an hour afterwards. Nothing extreme and very little swelling but it is to the point where I no longer eat raw avocado.


 


Here is the curious part:


 


Guacamole does not produce the same effect. When Dave recently posted his guacamole recipe (excellent, BTW), i tried it and it did not cause any of the itching. Also, store brand guacamole does not cause the itching.


 


Anyone have the same experience?
