Cross-reactivity is when an allergic person reacts to substances that are similar enough to the allergen that they are allergic to that it induces an allergic response. And example of this can be pollen, something we usually don’t associate with food allergies but a person allergic to pollen can also have cross-reactivity for certain foods like fruits, berries and species that contain similar substances.
