I have general sympathy, but no specific advice. I'm also carrying the epis for my pineapple allergy but fortunately, I haven't had to use them yet. I carry benadryl too though, and I've taken that a couple of times when I've been exposed incidentally. (pizza place that I think may have gotten some pineapple residue on our pizza and when I was in the presence of a large quantity of freshly cut pineapple) It's really a pain.

Did the doc say why the tide is turning against using the benadryl? When I've been exposed to but not consumed any pineapple I have been able to prevent the gasping for breath with it and I'd rather not stress my heart and go to the ER if I can avoid it with a couple of little pills.
