30 Bananas a Day!

Normally, I eat around 4 mangoes a day without the skin and don't have a problem. Today, I ate one with some of the skin on, and now, my tongue burns. Is this normal? I have never eaten the skin before now. Also, I'm on antibiotics from having a sinus infection, so I was wondering if maybe the medicine was conflicting with the mango. Has anyone ever have this happen to them? And, if so, do you know why?

Mangos have urisriol in the skin, the same stuff that poison Ivey/oak/sumac has that's gives you horrible oozing itchy blisters! People's who are allergic to poison ivy should not eat mango skin. Please take precautions and wear gloves when pealing your mango and make sure to rinse it in cold water very well (while still wearing gloves. Wear gloves to wash any utensils, cutting boards, plates, cups, blenders, etc. have you been experiencing redness, dryness, itching, swelling, rash, or irritation of any kind? The symptoms can be very hard to notice as you have not actually eaten the skin, and you likely wash your hands after handling a mango because they are messy!
Pardon, I misspelled the allergic compound! URUSHIOL
Thanks! I've never had poison ivy, so I didn't know I was allergic. With that said, I touch mangoes with my hands all the time and nothing happens. That's why I was surprised to have a reaction.
