Depending on use, sumac berries can sub for citrus.

My daughter does have citric acid allergy, determined by a skin allergy test done by a board certified allergist. Anyway, we use white balsamic vinegar for lemon juice in recipes. It has worked very well for things like fruit salad, wilted lettuce, and some chicken dishes which called for lemon juice.

For cranberries in baking recipes, we substitute tart cherries. For cranberry sauce, we will be making pomegranate sauce.

Do any of the plants with lemon in their names like lemon basil, lemon thyme, or lemongrass have citric acid in them or is it another compound that gives it the lemony smell?

I too am allergic

I am also allergic to critics foods and foods in the night shade group of foods which include any type of peppers, paprika, white potatoes, tomato, and other ingredients. Which has made it very hard for me. I do break out in hives and/or rashes depending on the type of foods.
I had not thought of white vinegar but had thought of the lemon grass. Is there other herbs that might taste similar to other citrus fruits without the acid?
I especially want to make infused water to use in shakes and cooking.
