Chrissy Teigen Says Her Swollen Lips Were Caused by an Allergic Reaction After Biting Orange Peel
Teigen believes there may have been pesticides or some other substance on the orange peel that caused the reaction.
“I bit an orange to try to open it, and I think there must have been a pesticide or something on it,” she said.
Inside Edition showed the video to dermatologist Dr. Doris Day. She says there are warning signs that require immediate attention.
“If you notice tongue swelling or difficulty swallowing, that’s a life-threatening situation, potentially. So go right to the emergency room and have it evaluated,” Day said.
Some fruits, like strawberries and apples, can sometimes cause similar reactions if they’re not washed.
Teigen found humor in the dilemma by poking at her lips. “Look how bouncy they are,” she said.
By the next day, the swelling had gone down.
