Mango Skin Disorder:


1. When mango is in bloom can cause people to suffer from itching around the eyes, facial swelling and respiratory difficulty, even though there is no airborne pollen. Pollens are too large to be air borne. The irritant is probably the vaporized essential oil of the flowers, which contains the sesquiterpene alcohol, mangiferol, and the ketone, mangiferone.
2. The sap, which oozes from the stalk close to the base of the fruit, is somewhat milky at first. Later it becomes pale-yellow and translucent when dried. It contains mangiferen, resinous acid, mangiferic acid, and the resinol, mangiferol. The sap of the trunk and branches and the skin of the unripe fruit is a potent skin irritant, and capable of blistering the skin. As with poison ivy, there is typically a delayed reaction. Hypersensitive persons may react with considerable swelling of the eyelids, the face, and other parts of the body. They may not be able to handle, peel, or eat mangos or any food containing mango flesh or juice. A good precaution is to use one knife to peel the mango, and a clean knife to slice the flesh to avoid contaminating the flesh with any of the resin in the peel.
3. The leaves contain the glucoside, mangiferine. In India, cows were formerly fed mango leaves. Since continuous intake of the leaves may be fatal, it is not practiced any more.
4. Smoke from Mango wood is highly irritant.

Allergic Reactions:
Respiratory: Wheezing, Asthma,
Skin: Rash, itching, blisters around mouth.

Prevention:
1. Avoid contact with sap and unripe fruit.
2. Keep separate knives to peel skin and one to remove fleshy part of mango. To avoid contaminating the flesh with any of the resin in the peel.
3. Do not use glue prepared from mango bark.
4. Do not use mango bark for fireplaces or firewood.
5. Take antihistamine regularly few days before mango bloom is expected.
