About Our Chili Pepper Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE antibody allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to Chili Peppers.
It is estimated that as many as 14 in every 10,000 people are allergic to chili peppers. Allergies to chili peppers may indicate a deeper allergy to nightshades. Included in this family of nightshades are tomatoes, eggplants, cayenne pepper, bell peppers, and potatoes.
It can be difficult to determine if a reaction to peppers is caused by an allergy, or if it's merely the body's natural reaction to the spice itself. That's why it's important to be aware of the symptoms associated with a pepper allergy.
Symptoms of pepper allergies include
- Itchy eyes
- Itchy skin
- Hives or rash
- Nasal congestion
- Swelling of the lips
- Wheezing or difficulty breathing
- Nausea or vomiting
- Swollen throat
- Dizziness, lightheadedness, or loss of consciousness
Chili peppers are typically used as spices or condiments, and so they tend to be eaten in very small amounts. However, if you find that you have an allergy to chili peppers, it's best to avoid all peppers all together.
