Peach Allergy Leaves Girl, 10, With Sausage Lips

Story ByJohn FengSub EditorJoseph GolderAgencyAsia Wire Report

This is the face of a young girl whose lips became as big as ‘sausages’ after she noshed on a delicious peach and suffered an allergic reaction.

The 10-year-old named ‘Xin Xin’ shared a peach with her little brother but told her mum, Ms Li, she was feeling uncomfortable shortly after.

Ms Li, who is from Yixing City in East China’s Jiangsu Province, said she looked up and saw Xin Xin’s mouth badly swollen.

An image of the poor girl shared to social media shows her lips having swollen to several times their normal size.

Her bottom life appears to be particularly large, leading to reports comparing it to a ‘sausage’.

The concerned mum took her daughter to a clinic, which referred her to the Yixing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Doctor Zhang Yuan treated Xin Xin for her ‘sausage lip’ condition, and the girl has since recovered, but she has been advised not to eat the popular summer fruit again.

Ms Li revealed her daughter had eaten peaches in the past but never had an allergic reaction.

Doctor Zhang explained that the girl’s body may have stopped producing antibodies against Lipid Transfer Protein, which is an allergen.
