Mango sap can land you in hospital

Quote:The humble mango. It's delicious, it's nutritious, and it grows in abundance in Australia.

It could also land you in hospital.

Georgia Carter knows this from painful experience. She's a victim of "mango burn".

The rash or burn occurs when fruit sap squirts onto exposed skin, leaving huge welts, pustules and scabs.

About 10 years ago, 77 workers in the Northern Territory found this out the hard way, ending up in Katherine Hospital with mango burns.

Georgia's experience was so bad it sent her to hospital.

“I think the problem was that I had put the mangoes in my front pockets, all over me ... I didn’t even think that would happen,” she said.

A day later, Georgia noticed a small mark near her collarbone.

"It genuinely started looking like I had burnt it with a [hair] straightener. That’s what it first looked like, but over the next few days it kept spreading and getting worse and worse,” she said.

It took Georgia a few days to figure out that the rash came from sap...

Chris Robinson has run a mango orchard in Kununurra for around thirty years, and he learnt quickly that sap burns aren’t just painful, they’re also unprofitable.

“Mangoes that get sap squirted onto them, they will burn, and they will become unmarketable from a week or ten days later. It does the same thing to your skin ... you learn very quickly to not burn the mangoes, or yourself,” he said

"You gotta take them off with long stems. We’ve developed a technique to avoid sap burn but it still does happen occasionally, and we suffer through it.”

Plants are very powerful and if understood can be used as medicine and that includes fungi too

Mangos are one of my favorite fruits because of their delicate pine flavor.

I've wondered if it's because I love, really, really love pine trees, their fragrance and their pine cones,

RE: Mango sap can land you in hospital
Poison ivy belongs to the same plant family, Anacardiaceae, as mangos and cashews. All three of these plants produce urushiol, the compound that causes the itchy rash. People who chew the mango flesh from mango skins frequently get a blister rash on their lips. Pistachios also belong to this family but do not cause a rash. Poison oak and poison sumac are in the same genus as poison ivy.

Have you ever tried spruce tips?

I LOVE these..

RE: Mango sap can land you in hospital
I found out I was highly allergic to the skin of mangoes years ago when I lived in South Florida and we had a mango tree in our front yard. When I took a mango in the house and washed it off in the kitchen sink, I started eating the juicy mango over the sink.

Hours later my lips swelled up to about twice the size of normal, my entire face was swollen and my eyes were almost swollen shut. I didn't have difficulty breathing, but I think the doc gave me some steroid cream for my face.

Mangoes are the only thing I know of that I'm allergic to, and if I stay away from the skin of the mango (the urushiol oil), I'm usually ok with eating mango pulp.

At least it was temporary. Better than a botched plastic surgery job.
