    Goldenrod is a species of flowering plant that is usually found in open spaces like grasslands, meadows, dunes, savannas and prairies. Although people use it for preparing the yellow dye, it has certain disadvantages.

    This yellow plant is often the primary cause of several health complications. As the species belongs to the ragweed family, its pollen is considered an allergen that can lead to complications. So, if you accidentally inhale the pollen from these plants, you might experience the signs of an allergy.

    Goldenrod can cause allergy symptoms similar to hay fever, which you should keep in mind.

    • Sneezing 
    • Coughing 
    • Itchy nose and throat 
    • Nasal congestion 
    • Wheezing 
    • Shortness of breath 
    • Extreme fatigue 
    • Sleep problems 
    • Postnasal drip

    As everyone's immune system reacts to the pollens differently, the symptoms might vary slightly. It's essential to record your signs and symptoms for proper allergy diagnosis later on.

    When the pollens from the Goldenrod plant enter your body, the immune system can misidentify them as "intruders" or "foreign" elements. To protect you from the allergen, your immune system will develop antibodies.

    These antibodies will signal the immune system to release chemicals like histamine. After that, a reaction will occur which will lead to multiple symptoms. In case you have asthma, the pollen allergy might aggravate your condition.

    That's why it's essential to seek medical consultation whenever you experience allergy symptoms.

    The most common test or allergy diagnosis for this condition is the Goldenrod Allergy Test. In this test, the main objective is to understand if your immune system has produced IgE antibodies. It will help the doctor examine your allergic symptoms and associated complications.

    Moreover, they will be able to identify the allergen and its effect on your body properly. For the Goldenrod Allergy Test procedure, the doctor will collect a sample of your blood. He will examine the sample to identify the IgE antibodies responsible for your health complications.

    After the analysis, the doctor will develop a treatment plan and prescribe you medications accordingly. These medications might include Nasal corticosteroids and Antihistamines. Further, your physician might begin immunotherapy to help you get rid of the Goldenrod allergy symptoms.

    The test will aid the doctor in understanding whether you have become sensitized to the allergen. In addition, it is also crucial to assess the severity of the health reactions you might be experiencing. You must also tell your physician if you are taking any medications or have any existing health condition. You can also present the record of your allergy reactions and symptoms to help the diagnosis.

    The doctor might also ask you questions about your lifestyle, diet and past medical history. In addition, he might even suggest strategies to avoid pollen allergies and tackle allergy symptoms.
