Ask the allergist is a regular feature in our newsletters where Canadian allergists answer your questions! 

Please note: The allergists featured in this series answer questions on general topics, please talk to your doctor if you have questions about your own health or the health of your child. 

With the news of an early start to Spring allergies this year, we are re-sharing questions on pollen food allergy syndrome (PFAS) also known as oral allergy syndrome or OAS, answered by Dr. Julia Upton.

Dr. Julia Upton is on staff at the Hospital for Sick Children in the Immunology and Allergy Department; Medical Director, Clinical Research Centre at SickKids Research Institute; and an Associate Professor in the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Toronto. She is on the Board of Directors at the Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology and a member of our Healthcare Advisory Board.  

Please note: Dr. Upton is answering as an individual allergist and her answers do not constitute an official position of her affiliated organizations. Her responses are for informational purposes only and do not constitute specific medical advice, recommendations, diagnosis, or treatment. Please talk to your doctor about any concerns or questions you may have regarding your own health or the health of your child.
