    Allergies to foods, trees, and different contaminants are well-known in medical science. If you have an allergic reaction to a particular item, your body would consider it toxic. This is when the immune system produces immunoglobulin E (IgE antibodies) to fight these substances.

    The result of this immune response leads to the development of various allergic symptoms. Similar reactions can be seen if you are allergic to alder trees. If you are allergic to alder trees, your body can produce an immune response leading to the following symptoms:

    • Runny nose
    • Watery eyes
    • Itchy ears and eyes
    • Sneezing
    • Swelling around the eye region

    As you can observe, alder allergy symptoms are similar to most pollen allergies. Hence, an antibody allergy test becomes crucial for identifying the main cause.

    If you notice these signs after coming in contact with grey alder trees, it is possible that you might have this allergy. The alder tree pollen can spread through the air and cause an adverse reaction. Since these trees are widespread, you need to be cautious while visiting outdoors.

    You should visit your doctor for a recommendation of allergy testing under the following cases:

    • You came in contact with alder trees (directly or indirectly)
    • Since the exposure, you noticed one or more of the allergy symptoms

    Since your doctor needs to be certain about your allergy to alder trees, they may recommend an antibody allergy test.

    The Alder Allergy Test is a blood evaluation that detects IgE antibodies in your bloodstream. In this test, the lab technician will insert a sterilised needle into a vein on your arm. You might experience some pain during the withdrawal of blood.

    After properly extracting the blood sample, the medical experts will analyse your specimen for an IgE antibody trace. A positive antibody allergy test report indicates the presence of these antibodies in your blood. Hence, your doctor will assess your active alder allergy symptoms along with these results.

    After in-depth analysis, your doctor would give the diagnosis of alder allergy. Since there is no cure for such allergies, timely diagnosis through an Alder Allergy Test can help health professionals treat your active symptoms. In addition, you may require over-the-counter medicines or allergy shots to treat the symptoms. After treating the allergy symptoms, you will be advised to avoid visiting places with grey alder trees.

    Apollo 24|7 offers an Alder Allergy Test at affordable rates. This testing can help establish the presence and quantity of IgE antibodies. Thereby helping your doctor decide the suitable treatment depending on your symptoms and the intensity of the allergy.
