Tapioca balls in a boba. Reacts like a latex allergy. Trying to decide if I need to go to ER. Took allergy pill, sipping cool water. ‎· orgmonkey
Apparently, it is a thing. "Allergy to cassava: a new allergenic food with cross-reactivity to latex." 2007 article J Investig Allergol Clin Immunol. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18088025 ‎· bentley

Wait what? Tapioca aggravates latex allergy? I don't... oh, no reason. .. just let me, uh. .. *checks lube stash labels* ‎· t-ra
shiiiiiiit, how are you feeling? ‎· Meg Vmeg
Like moist dog food. At least I'm breathing easier now. My throat's tender. ‎· orgmonkey
Hope the reaction has stopped and you are on the mend - allergies are scary. ‎· jsholman
:-( I hope all is well now! ‎· Galadriel
