Allergy To Pith?

Hey Guys.

I've always had a weird reaction to Citrus Fruits, but only ever fresh ones.

I can drink Juice fine, eat segments in fruit salads fine, but when ever I eat a fresh Orange or Grapefruit, My lips go crazy! They burn, they go all red and dry and occasionally white.

I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to the pith, as the most painful incident I had was when I once broke an orange slice in half (skin included) and the spray that came out the skin landed right on my face and it was INSTANT BURN like you wouldn't believe.

It's such a weird reaction. Does anyone else have this?

It's so annoying, I love fresh Grapefruit! But I just ate and now with my dry burning lips am massively regretting it :(
