Many meals benefit from the sweetness, colour, and nutritional value of carrots. They belong to the Apiaceae family of plants that also includes parsley, and are high in fibre and beta carotene. Carrots are also full of allergens that could be dangerous to those with allergies.

Their long, thin, orange storage roots, which have lacy green foliage, can be consumed raw or cooked. Cooking breaks down the allergenic proteins in carrots and reduces the damaging effect they have on the immune system.

A carrot allergy can cause anything from minor to severe symptoms. When a raw carrot slice is in the mouth, symptoms often appear. The moment the carrot is ingested or removed, the symptoms disappear. Some symptoms of a carrot allergy include:

  • Swollen mouth, throat, lips, or tongue
  • Scratchy throat 
  • Itching ears and mouth

Usually, there is no need for medical attention or medicine for these symptoms. An antihistamine may be needed if the symptoms of a carrot allergy are more severe. These signs consist of:

  • Hives
  • Skin-deep swelling
  • Breathing issues 
  • Feeling lightheaded 
  • Runny nose and coughing
  • Nasal congestion, irritation, and itchy eyes
  • Chest discomfort 
  • Difficulty in speaking
  • Anaphylaxis

If you have a carrot allergy, you must carefully read the product labels and inquire about the contents of meals when dining out. 
Carrots may be used in the following items:

  • Packaged marinade
  • Fruit sorbets 
  • Blended 'green' health beverages 
  • Some soups, including vegetable or chicken soups
  • Rice mixture packages
  • Baked items and cooking broth

Several items for personal hygiene contain carrots, including facial cleansers, lotions, and scrubs.

Despite the rarity of a carrot allergy, hypersensitive individuals who consume carrots or products containing carrots may develop mild to severe allergic reactions. In addition, eating raw carrots may trigger carrot allergy symptoms in someone with pollen-food allergy syndrome, also referred to as oral allergy syndrome.

Apollo 24|7 provides a comprehensive Carrot Allergy test that helps determine the underlying cause of allergy and its treatment. The test diagnoses carrot allergy by analysing Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies. It may also help identify the allergens that trigger anaphylactic reactions or other allergy-related illnesses.

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What are some common symptoms of a carrot allergy?

A carrot allergy can elicit mild to severe effects, but the majority of people only have minor symptoms. Swelling of the mouth and itchy tongue, ears, lips, mouth, and throat are some common symptoms of a carrot allergy.

Do carrots cause severe allergies?

Though carrots don't rank among the top six allergen-inducing foods, some individuals are sensitive to them. Since the proteins in raw carrots and birch tree pollen are identical, those with a carrot allergy are also sensitive to birch tree pollen.

How long does the Carrot Allergy test last?

The testing process only takes a few minutes and is rapid. During the procedure, the blood sample is evaluated, which takes some time. You might receive the results in a few days.

Do carrots have a high histamine content?

Carrots do not trigger the release of the body's endogenous histamine since it is likely low in histamine and other amines.

How is a carrot allergy treated?

An allergic reaction to carrots can result in a wide range of manifestations, from moderate ones like hives to catastrophic ones like anaphylaxis. One should always keep an injection kit with Epinephrine on hand if they have a carrot allergy. Epinephrine is the primary treatment for anaphylaxis. To steer clear of an allergic reaction, carrots must be completely avoided.

Which dietary precautions are advised before a Carrot Allergy test?

Eating something healthy before your appointment is always a good idea. Simply steer clear of foods that have previously given you a reaction. Your doctor could advise additional dietary restrictions for the test.
