    Health warning! If you are at all sensitive to poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac, pistachios, or cashews, I urge you NOT to try this! You might end up with a very very uncomfortable skin rash from the mangos.

    It happened to me, just from getting some mango juice around my mouth. I once diagnosed mangos as the cause of a friend's rash -- by phone, when she said she couldn't figure out how she had been exposed to poison ivy.

    Botanically, mangos, poison ivy, poison oak, pistachios, and cashews are all related (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anacardiaceae). Typically, the more you are exposed to any of these, the higher your chances of a reaction, even if you never showed signs of a rash before.

    So, please take care.

    Hi, Mraponi Jan 12, 2015
    Good question, but people would not necessarily know, for several reasons
    • the sensitivity can build up over a long period of time. Lots of people think they are immune to poison ivy, for example, until they suddenly get the rash, apparently out of the blue. That happened to both my husband and me with poison ivy, and with mangos for me.
    • because of the cross-reactivity to these plants, even if you know you get a rash from one kind, you might not realize you're sensitive to another one.
    • because you encounter the plants in very different contexts and forms (mangos as tropical fruit; poison ivy and oak as weeds outdoors; cashews and pistachios in a bowl of nuts), you might not realize you've been exposed in the past. Or you might have had the rash in the past, but blamed it on something else altogether.
    • because the way you are exposed might make a difference to your sensitivity. For example, I can eat mangos in mango lassi shakes IF I use a straw and am careful not to get the drink on my lips or skin. But I don't dare eat fruit salad that has mango chunks in it, let alone dive into a fresh ripe mango the way I once could.
