You can be allergic to anything with protein in it so I see no reason
someone couldn't be allergic to oranges. You can have chemical
sensitivities - I actually do have one to bleach if it is fairly
concentrated *however* I got it through working with it in
concentrations of over 10% [common household bleach is from 2-5% as a
comparison. It can be found in concentrations of up to 22% but that
tends to be for very specific industrial applications.] It expresses
itself in what appears to be an asthma attack.
